Frustration?: I didn't see your other question, but if you are frustrated with your medications and the way they're working or not working, you need to take it up with your own doctor. There are many possible reasons for medicines not seeming to work -- anything from other existing conditions, need to change dosage, wrong diagnosis, or need to change medication itself. Good luck in talking with your doctor!
