For anyone using the rectal Diastat I have found Madazolm to be far better in stopping seizures. You can get it in needle form or nasal form but you have to ask your doctor. The nasal form is just a cushion top that pops on the syringe after you have drawn the liquid meds. I have used Diastat a dozen times and it has not stopped the seizures but the Madazolm works like a champ. I used 1.0 ml or 2.5 mg and the seizure stopped within minutes and my daughter opened her eyes in about 20 minutes. Plus the recovery time is an hour or so with little sickness. With the Diastat she would be sick for days. By the way it is the same drug just administered differently.
