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 helps to reduce seizure duration and aid with safety. Given promptly, this relatively simple procedure can prevent major disruption to daily life resulting from hospital emergency treatment.
