Rescue Meds Available for Seizures?
I posted earlier about my breakthrough seizures after being seizure free for 16 yrs while taking medication. I am currently taking 1mg lorazepam 3 times a day to “prevent” another grand mal seizure (I know it could still happen). I’m taking it because I will have several petit mals a day if I don’t take it. I’m still taking lamotrigine as well. I’m taking the lorazepam until I can see the epileptologist. My question is what are the different types of rescue meds? I know there are different methods to administer them, I’m just wondering the names of what’s available and maybe which ones work better than others and maybe which ones doctors are more willing to prescribe. My primary doctor is prescribing the lorazepam and I think she is scared to because of the addiction thing. Believe me, I only want it to prevent the petit mals!! My old neurologist doesn’t want to see me because he wants me to see an epileptologist so he passed me on to my primary doctor to prescribe the lorazepam until I see the epileptologist. Thanks for your feedback! 💜
