Prevent Mix-Ups With Seizure Prophylaxis Meds
Meds may be needed to prevent seizures in patients with a neurological injury...from a brain bleed, trauma, etc.
Help ensure antiseizure meds get delivered ASAP...even though the patient may not be actively seizing. Many seizures occur within the first 24 hours after the injury.
Expect levetiracetam or phenytoin to be preferred...both reduce the risk of seizures after a neurological injury. But levetiracetam has an edge...fewer side effects and interactions.
