Both work: It's your these medicines are effective. The reason medication stop working may depend on many factors. Sometimes the body develops resistance to a medication that is working fine. The resistance can occur because of antibodies against the drug. It can also occur because the mechanism of the disease of the illness can change differently at the molecular level. You doctor can better answer this.
