Thank you for posting your query.

The clinical picture is suggestive of mild developmental delay and epilepsy. EEG has also shown features of seizure disorder (epilepsy).

Your daughter requires anti-epileptic drugs to prevent the recurrence of epileptic attacks. Good drugs for her would include carbamazepine, levetiracetam, lamotrigine, etc.

I would suggest that you start one of these drugs for your daughter, in consultation with a neurologist.

Best wishes,
