Lysodren and its generic counterpart, Mitotane, are prescription medications that are used as cancer medications. Lysodren (Mitotane) is an oral chemotherapeutic agent used to treat cancer of the adrenal gland, or adrenal cortical carcinoma. This cancer can trigger an overproduction of cortisol, the hormone produced by the adrenal glands, resulting in a condition known as Cushing’s disease. Lysodren (Mitotane) acts by destroying and slowing the growth of adrenal gland cells and thus halting the overproduction of cortisol. Doctors may also prescribe this medication to patients with other forms of cancer or other medical problems, depending on their patients' medical situations.
