New Job And Rescue Med

New Job And Rescue Med

I got a new job. Going in the office on Tuesday or maybe tomorrow. Anyway, should I bring my rescue med to work? I think I have refills on it, but if not, I can ask my neurologist for another thing of Diazepam. My seizures are most of the time serious. My last one I was in status and one before that I had a cluster and over 10 years ago when I had them regularly, they all were clusters of 10 or more except when I was in status.

Definitely bring your rescue med with you! I bring mine EVERYWHERE. I’d rather have it and not need it vs needing it and not have it.

Hi @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , I understand that part with work. My seizures are also unpredictable. They aren’t 100% controlled. They can happen at anytime of the day or not. There were times if, my seizures did act up, my supervisor respectfully would ask if I needed to go home. I would try and work on, but tell the supervisor if I had another, that I should go home. Not all my different jobs supervisors, were like that. But a few of the different jobs were.

I just pray and hope that I don’t seizure at work. Prayers to you also that you don’t seizure during work.

If you expect to be having cluster seizures at work , then ya it’s a good idea. That what the recovery meds are for. To slow and stop the seizure clusters.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I just spoke to my wife about when I really took bad and the ambulance crew had to give me a large amount of diazepam rectal so I could regain concious. I don't remember any of it. But if an injection can help that's better.
