Mitotane Uses

Lysodren (Mitotane) is an adrenal cytotoxic agent used for the treatment of inoperable, functional or nonfunctional, adrenal cortical carcinoma.

Dosage: The recommended initial mitotane dose is 2 to 6 g orally, in three or four divided doses per day. Swallow the tablets with a glass of water during meals containing fat-rich food. Increase the doses incrementally in order to achieve a blood concentration of 14-20 mg/L, or as tolerated. Inform your healthcare team promptly if you have accidentally administered more dose than you should or if a child has accidentally swallowed some. If you miss a dose, just administer the next dose as scheduled. Never take a double dose in order to make up for the missed/forgotten one.
