Diastat® AcuDial™ Can Control a Breakthrough Seizure

  • Diastat® AcuDial™ is an at-home medication for patients 2 years of age and older on stable antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) who require occasional use of diazepam to control bouts of increased seizure activity or breakthrough seizures (increased seizure activity; also called serial or cluster seizures)

    five days

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

DIASTAT® (diazepam rectal gel) is a gel formulation of diazepam intended for rectal administration for certain patients with epilepsy who are already taking antiepileptic medications, and who require occasional use of diazepam to control bouts of increased seizure activity.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
  • If you are a caregiver administering DIASTAT ensure that you have read and understand the accompanying Administration and Disposal Instructions. Ensure that you (1) can identify the difference between cluster of seizures (and/or the events that precipitate the onset of seizures) from ordinary seizure activity, (2) a doctor confirms that you are able to use the product as instructed, (3) understand which seizures may or may not be treated with diazepam rectal gel, and (4) monitor the effect of diazepam rectal gel and know when to seek professional medical help.
  • Do not use DIASTAT if you are allergic to diazepam.
  • Do not use DIASTAT if you have an eye condition known as acute narrow angle glaucoma.
  • Do not operate machinery, drive a motor vehicle, or ride a bike until you no longer feel the effects of DIASTAT.
  • Do not use DIASTAT with alcohol or in combination with other Central Nervous System (CNS) medications or products that cause respiratory (breathing) or CNS effects. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions about medications or products that you should not use in combination with DIASTAT.
  • DIASTAT should not be used in children under 6 months of age.
  • If you are nursing, pregnant, or of childbearing potential talk to your doctor before using DIASTAT.
  • Use with caution if you have breathing difficulties (such as asthma or pneumonia), kidney or liver disease, or are elderly. Talk to your doctor if any of these conditions apply to you, or if you are not sure if any of these conditions apply to you.
  • Diazepam rectal gel can cause drug addiction. Use no more than every five days and no more than five times per month.
  • The most frequent side effect reported for DIASTAT is somnolence (sleepiness or drowsiness). Other side effects include dizziness, headache, pain, abdominal pain, nervousness, vasodilation (increase in diameter of blood vessel), diarrhea, ataxia/incoordination (lack of coordination), euphoria (feeling of great happiness or well-being), asthma, rhinitis (irritation of the nose similar to an allergy or a cold) and rash.
