Most febrile seizures occur at or around the onset of fever. A few studies have reported ben- efit from intermittent benzodiazepines during fever for preventing febrile sei- zures and reducing emergency depart- ment visits and hospital admissions.


In addition, benzodiazepines febri, cause sedation, can interfere with hydra- tion and feeding, and may delay the recognition of a serious illness.
