Keep in mind Bi polar also involves depression, often this depression is more significant than
non bi-polar depression. Bi polars often stay in one phase most of the time so it is easy to miss
the cyclic nature, and decide one has depression.

Given to complex nature of having bipolar disorder and epilepsy it will take more than a few months to see major improvement. Bi polar itself is well known for taking several trials and much tinkering to get the right meds.

It is very western to expect meds to work at once.
I have learned, having taken many meds for 2 decades, that most psyco meds take months to work and sucess in the first weeks has little bearing on long term outcome. the first weeks are about side effects, sometimes these are positive effects
and we feel better. However, a cascade of changes
happen when you first take a med, and this cascade does not level out for months.

To stay or to go ? Going somewhere else will not
improve your neurology.
