The combination of the medication's two phases allows for better care of your dog's disease so he or she can be feeling like normal in no time.
Lysodren is a perfect treatment option as it is kind your wallet. In addition, Lysodren is incredibly easy to administer to your dog. This treatment option is not a shot or a pill that you have to force your dog to swallow by hiding it in its food. There is no need to tempt your dog to take its medication in numerous unhealthy treats as this medication comes in a convenient chewable tablet.
Lysodren is the Generic Alternative to Mitotane.
Side Effects and Warnings
In treating Cushing's Disease, lysodren may erode the adrenal cortex so far as to create a cortisone defiency, either temporarily or irreparably. The latter case is referred to as Addison’s disease. Symptoms include loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea , weakness and drowsiness. Contact a veterinarian immediately if symptoms are observed.
This medication should not be used in animals that are allergic to it. Do not use in pregnant or nursing animals. Use with caution in animals with kidney or liver disease. Use caution when used with insulin or spironolactone.

I bought this product for my dog when she was diagnosed about 6 years ago. When I first bought this I went to a regular pharmacy and was charged $500 was this medication because they told me not many people were on it and I had to purchase the whole bottle of 100 tablets. Now I guess it's more out there and cheaper to buy. Great deal....

Rated 5 out of 5 It's a miracle
Sadie was diagnosed with Cushings. My vet advised against starting treatment (Lysodren) until she deteriorated greatly saying the treatment could be worse than the disease. However, she lacked energy, drank all the time,therefore had accidents, was starving,etc. . She was losing her hair (her tail was almost bald & she's a poodle!)Once she went on Lysodren, she's was like a new dog. Active, her appetite & thirst are under control. Even more amazing is that she grew back a lush thick coat which is dark red like it was when she was a puppy! It improved her quality of life tremendously! *This is a prescription item.
