Another Complex Partial - Diastat - Increase Keppra


Today, Jessie had an early Hand Seizure, and then started to go in and out of a Complex Partial. We thought that it was ending, then it would start back again. Finally we gave her Diastat and she fell asleep. Diastat

Diastat is a rescue medicine for seizures that go longer than 4 minutes (or some other prescribed time) It is basicall a rectally administered valium type drug that is supposed to stop seizures. This one was stopped, but it went about 30 minutes total, but at least we didn't end up in the emergency room again.

The next day, Dr. Chacon bumped up her Keppra to 7.5ml in the morning and 5ml at night.
