Seizures at the end of life

Seek treatable underlying causes. Prepare and counsel the family on how to manage seizures in the event of these occurring at home and provide them with the appropriate medication. Medicines could include:

  • Buccal midazolam or rectal Valium that can be administered immediately even at home
  • Midazolam infusion may need to be started if the seizures continue.
