The sequence for status is
ABC->thiamine->glucose-> diazepam 2mg/min -> phenytoin in NS or half NS 50 mg/min up to a max of 18mg/kg-> intubate if needed -> short acting barbiturate (phenobarbital 10-20mg/kg)-> long acting (pentobarbitol anesthesia)
You would obviously stop anytime the patient stop convulsing and regains consciousness.
