Unhappy myasthenia gravis

i have a 2yr old mini dashund (female),she has been diagnoised with myasthenia gravis.......she is taking mestinon 60mg....2x a day (1.7 of a milg).she has some really bad times and then some ok times...she shakes when she tries to walk ,has to lay down after a few feet of walking,lays around most of the time,has to be prompted to eat(beef cubes or dog food).she goes outside to do her business but sometimes has accidents in house.she does plays on occasion,but only for very short periods.she barks and goes to the door if someone comes in,but when she tries to run or walk faster...her back legs seem to have no energy..she kinda hops?
i also noticed her stomach growls alot more lately?has this anything to do with her lack of eatting or another problem?at first my vet had no idea what was wrong...it took them 6 months to figuire out her illness...now i sometimes wonder if this is truely her illness? I trust my vet he is wonderful...but i want my pet well......he says this is as good as she is gonna get?i am not happy with that but if that is how it is...i must help her in any way i can....do you have any suggestions?other tests?other places i should take her?anything else? money is no problem? Thank you,Connie Say
