Thank you for your query,
The description of your child symptoms are not looking like a seizure episode.
But he should be observed further episodes and if needed by a prolonged Video-EEG monitoring to detect the abnormality of brain electric abnormality in correlation with his symptoms.
You continue the medication as advised by your Neurophysician and be in regular follow up.
Hope I have answered your query.
