A friend is taking mitotane for cancer. She has been increasing her dosage but her levels are decreasing. She has been taking it crushed and with lactaid. Could that be causing her to not absorb the mitotane?

Milk can affect the absorption of certain medicines eg. tetracycline antibiotics.
I could find no information about milk affecting the absorption of mitotane.
Check with your pharmacist.
