    Try expanding the function as a power series.

    i took 2 derivs and it looked like some kind of pattern might emerge but i did not care enough to take more. if you want to egt it you might take 4 or 5 derivatives carefully and look hard at them.

    Expand the exponential function as a power series - the pattern when taking derivatives will be evident!
