Staccato Alprazolam for Seizure Rescue

Research Question:
Can a single dose of inhaled alprazolam effectively stop seizure activity?

Basic Study Information

Epilepsy is a brain disorder characterized by recurrent seizures. It can occur as a result of a brain injury, a structural brain lesion, as a part of many medical diseases, or it may be something someone is born with. When seizures are not well controlled, patients might experience seizure emergencies and have a need for acute treatment in addition to their regular medicines. After patient's seizure types are evaluated and approved, they will be trained on using the Staccato alprazolam device at home for prolonged seizures. Study involves enrolling a study partner (family member, caregiver) to participate in the study with the patient. Patients aged 12 and older with focal or generalized epilepsy who have long seizures are eligible to participate.
