Treatment of Cushing’s syndrome depends on the cause. Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Options include:

  • Surgical removal of a pituitary tumor
  • Surgical removal of part, all, or both adrenal glands
  • Radiation therapy for some persistent tumors
  • Gradual withdrawal of cortisone-type drugs under close medical supervision
  • Drugs that decrease cortisol production or block the functioning of other adrenal products
