(i know its dangerous) but can puting someone into an alcohol induced coma stop a protracted siezure as with a drug induced coma such as phenobarbital?
Bad idea. Do not put anything in the mouth if a person having a seizure. They can choke and it can go into their lungs and they can die. If a person is having a seizure that won't stop, or having multiple seizures back to back, get them to an er.
Hypothetically (although dangerous) can an alcohol induced coma stop a seizure like a coma other sedative drugs such as phenobarbital or propofol?
Not reliably. If the seizure is for sure due to alcohol withdrawal, this may be possible -- but the amount needed may kill the person first. I'm sure you've heard of death from alcohol poisoning. There are many other possible causes for seizures, and alcohol-induced coma is not the way to treat those either. Read more...
