To control increased seizure activity, give Diastat® AcuDial™ during acute repetitive seizure episodes
or as directed by your physician.
A repetitive seizure is a seizure that follows soon after another seizure ends.
The doctor will tell you and your caregiver exactly when to use Diastat®. When you use Diastat® correctly you can
help bring breakthrough seizures under control. Be sure to discuss every aspect of your role with the doctor.
If you are not comfortable, then discuss your role with the doctor again.
To help the person with seizures:
- You must be able to tell the difference between cluster and
- You must be comfortable and satisfied that you are able to give Diastat®
- You need to agree with the doctor on the exact conditions when to treat with Diastat®
- You must know how and for how long you should check the person after giving Diastat®
To know what responses to expect:
- You need to know how soon seizures should stop or decrease in frequency after giving Diastat®
- You need to know what you should do if the seizures do not stop or there is a change in the person’s
breathing, behavior, or condition that alarms you
If you have any questions or feel unsure about using the
treatment, CALL THE DOCTOR before using Diastat®.
