Epilepsy AND DILANTIN

I was taking 400mg per day of dilantin and my blood was coming back at 8.6
(that was the best yet). Mr Dr up'd me to 450mg per day to try to get to the 10 range. last week I had my blood drawn and today it came back at 8.1.
Why would that come back so low when my dilantin was up'd 50mg per day? I don't get it.
I can't talk to my Dr. till Monday but does anyone have a reason for this, that should have gone up for sure NOT down.
