Buccal Midazolam is a rescue medication which has become more widespread in recent years and which can be very important for people with epilepsy. It is administered during a seizure under medical advice and given promptly, helps to reduce seizure duration. This relatively simple procedure can prevent major disruption to daily life resulting from hospital emergency treatment that can result from a prolonged seizure.
Epilepsy Ireland provides training in Epilepsy Awareness and the administration of Buccal Midazolam to health care professionals, teachers and SNAs. We also provide demonstrations on the administration of the medication to parents and carers. Please see the links below for further details on each.
