well, if the medication she is currently on is not working, then you obviously have to do something.
When given the choice between a new med, and observation, I'd probably choose observation. They're trying to find triggers, so that they can better control symptoms. Under clinical observation, rather than parental observation, they may find something that has been previously missed.
