Children with more severe cases of febrile seizures may be prescribed either acute (i.e. emergency) or chronic (long-lasting) anti-seizure medicines and in general they are benzodiazepines or levetiracetam.
In the UK the National Health Service (NHS) is likely to prescribe Buccal-Midazolam (benzodiazepine) as the emergency drug which comes in two (2) brands; Epistatus® and Buccalam®. For long-lasting medications please consult your doctor.
Please see your doctor for more information or visit the Community to discuss with other parents their experiences with these drugs.
