In Reply We performed the analyses requested by Dr Poulton and colleagues, selecting a different age cutoff to better reflect differences in etiology for pediatric seizures. When we compared the younger age group (<2 years) with the older age group (≥2 years), both treatments were less effective in the older children (P = .03), but there were no differences between lorazepam and diazepam (Table).
