Perhaps the best thing to do is unpot the plant and replant it in fresh potting soil. There's no reason for a healthy plant to suddenly decline unless it has experienced a severe drought, has developed root rot, or the roots are burned due to over-fertilization. Taking the plant out of the pot, rinsing off the old potting soil and replanting in fresh potting soil should help. Then prune away any unhealthy looking leaves and stems. Be sure to water thoroughly and then allow the potting soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Hope your plant recovers soon.
