Have you been on any new medicines lately? Or you have done something different? Please add answer as a comment if you wish.
Drugs that can make Dilantin less effective in controlling seizures include carbamazepine (Tegretol, Epitol, Carbatrol), sucralfate (Carafate), and molindone (Moban).

I had the same thing happen to me about 6 years ago. It was about 104F outside and I had drank alot of water. Ended up in the ER. Doctor could not figure out why my dilantin level was @ 3.5. Then the nurse asked me if I had drank alot of water that morning and because I had it was the only thing they could come up with. Also had avoided being outside because it was tooooo HOT.
