What is Lysodren?
Lysodren is a prescription medication used to treat pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease (hyperadrenocorticism). It may also be prescribed to treat some of the symptoms of some types of cancer of the adrenal glands.

Who is it for?
Lysodren is for dogs.

What are the benefits?

* Effectively treats Cushing's disease in dogs
* Can be used to ease symptoms of certain types of cancers of the adrenal glands
* Tablets are easily given within a fatty treat or food to increase absorption

How does Lysodren work?
The adrenal gland produces steroids (cortisone-like hormones) that have multiple effects in the body. In Cushing's disease and some types of tumors, too many of these steroids are produced. Lysodren acts on the adrenal gland so it produces less of these steroids.

Is there a generic equivalent available?

How is it given?
Lysodren is given orally, with food, preferably a food high in fat content to increase absorption. Carefully follow your veterinarian's directions as to how it should be given.

Lysodren is usually given at high doses for the first 1-10 days, and then the dose is lowered under the direction of the veterinarian. Your veterinarian will work with you closely to determine when the dose is changed and by how much. This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
Each individual dog responds to Lysodren differently, but the goal of therapy is to decrease the symptoms related to Cushing's disease (increased thirst and appetite, poor hair coat, etc.). In most cases, the therapy needs to be continued for the life of the dog.

What form(s) does it come in?
Lysodren comes in tablet form.
