It would have been useful if you mentioned why you were prescribed it. Epilim has different uses like epilepsy, migraine prevention, mood disorders etc. However the dosage you are at for the moment is still low, lowest dose is usually 900 mg/day, so until you reach a full therapeutic dose it can't be considered ineffective, the dose will have to be increased.
