• Sublingual lorazepam was successful in controlling serial seizures in ten children. There was both intrasubject and intersubject variability in the effective dose, which ranged from about 0.05 mg/kg to 0.15 mg/kg. Side effects were minimal and consisted of drowsiness, unsteadiness, nausea, and hyperactivity. Sublingual lorazepam is an easy and effective way to treat serial seizures at home.
