If after giving a dose of diazepam the seizure does not stop within 2 - 3 minutes (IV) or 5 min (rectal) then give another dose. It is not that uncommon to have to.

If the patient is not to be referred and you want to give a loading dose of an anticonvulsant use 10 - 15 mg/kg of phenobarbital as a single loading dose. Dilute the phenobarbital in 1 part saline to one part phenobarbital and give it IV slowly. There have been anecdotal reports of animals having an anaphylactic reaction to components of the injectable form of phenobarbital. You can also give the loading dose orally, if you are certain that the patient is alert enough to take oral medications. The loading dose of potassium bromide is the same dose as the maintenance dose (30 mg/kg) only given every 4 - 6 hours for a total of 13 doses (either oral or rectal) and then switched to every 12 hours for maintenance.

Hi I entered a rehab about 11 months ago and for detox they gave me 10 mg Valium Q4h on day 1 along with Suboxone 6mg Q 12. On day 2 they gave me Valium 10 mg q6 along with Suboxone by 1pm the next day called an ambulance because I was lethargic, confused and had slurred speech.
