Performance issue with MySQL database backup

My friend and I have been trying to create a regular backup for a production database (large one, in fact). The database has both InnoDB and MyISAM tables. We have been using mysqldump but it keeps taking longer and longer each time. Sometimes, the server is even unresponsive when the dump is running. Should we find another backup option for us? Or make a change to the mysqldump? Thank you.
