A case of unusual behavior of a 5-month-old infant

A 5-month-old full-term male patient, born of a non-consanguineous marriage following parental concerns about abnormal movements and developmental regression. Development halted at 4 months of age. The patient increasingly showed episodes with the flickering of eyes and tonic movements followed by postictal behavior. He stopped fixing and following, stopped responding to loud noises, stopped reaching out for objects and had stopped babbling or making any noises, all of which he had been doing previously. Initial blood examinations revealed no significant abnormality. Plz, suggest the line of treatment.
