What can a spousal support payor do to terminate or lower the support to a receipient that appears to be manipulating the court system?

I was married for 12 years and have been separated for 6 years. I have been paying the high end of spousal support ever since. After the separation my spouse left her employment claiming being too sick to work. Initially, she claimed having been diagnosed with lupus, and a year later with fibromyalgia. Since she was not sick during the marriage, I asked her to provide me with some medical documentation to support her illness and work restriction. She never did. Last year, I obtain a court order which stipulates that she shall provide me with the required medical document from her specialist. Our initial court order states that she must stay on my health and benefit because of her lupus diagnosis, (lawyer had imput income as opposed to ask for medical proof) but last year when I requested through a court order that she provided me with medical documentation, and apply to Trillium Drug Plan. She then stated that she did not have lupus, (there is no know cure for this disease) To this day, she still has not provided me with any medical document to support her diagnosis of fibromyalgia, nor has she applied to the Trillium which places her in contempt of a court order. She still is not working to her full capacity. I sent her a job posting that was suitable for her earlier this year. Her answer was that she could not apply cause she did not have a resume.  What options are available in situation such as my case to terminate or reduce my spousal support amount?
