cushings treated but uncontrolled

my dog was diagnosed with cushings disease about 2 months ago. back in feb. she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. she is being treated for both. she is on trilostane-i forget the dosage but it is the amount for her weight which is about 48 lbs. she is a pitbull x named salka. she is blind (the problem is not her eyes-i took her to and opth. and she ruled that out. her opinion is that it is a pituitary tumor pressing on the ocular nerves.) salka still paces aimlessly, gets stuck in corners and whines. she has been blind for at least 3-4 months. she also has a hard time settling. sometimes i have to physically lay her down. she is losing weight. the last adrenal check and thyroid check was about a month ago, the adrenal levels were fine. her thyroid levels were a little low but my vet decided to keep her at her current dosage (.6) for the next 3 months. she seems to be getting worse. she doesn't have as many accidents in the house as she did before being treated, but that is the only thing that improved. initially her weight loss was good-but now she is losing too much. what could be going on with her?
