Do you carry rectal emergency meds like Diastat and how do you feel about people using that on you in public? My son has this meds and he's still young but just wondering how he would feel when used when he is older?
I just talked to the Epilepsy foundation: they suggested each kid carries a backpack when leaving the house and in it have the rectal meds and a rectal medication blanket or towel to use to cover the person during administration of the meds to provide privacy. Great idea.
Agreed. I have the rectal medication. The only thing I would keep in mind is that it might be something strangers would not know how use or even be comfortable using it. I'm not trying to shoot down this idea though. Personally, I keep the rectal medication at home so my wife can administer it in serious situations. I also carry around 2mg Meloxicam tablets that I can take at the beginning of a serious aura, or during reoccurring auras. I hope this helps and that your neurologists can give you a good recommendation, if not a different answer, as well.
