Thank you for posting your query.

Regarding seizure and ruling out epilepsy, MRI brain-epilepsy protocol and EEG (electroencephalography) are useful.

For evaluation of congenital heart disease, an echocardiogram and consultation with a cardiologist are useful.

If epilepsy is confirmed, anti-epileptic drugs would be required.
