72 Impatient EEG

My Neurologist is sending me for an 72 Hour EEG due to the fact my seizures have gotten outta control lately and my medication of dilantin levels went from .8 to 47 where the target is 10 to 20. I was admitted for 17 days and taken off dilantin and switched to depakote. Had MRI CT many EEG all normal except foe the eeg which has beeb abnormal since birth but not due to seizures. EEG shows no seizures ever but yet I still have them and many witnessed by doctors and nurses etc. I'm just wondering if after tge 72 Hour EEG and no seizures where they will try to induce dows this mean I don't have seizures?
