>So far I have this list : Flucanazole,Spironolactone,Metyrapone or Mifepristone.

I think it would be much better to stick with the herbs. Cortisol blocking medications can cause very serious side effects. There are no circumstances in which it would be safe or appropriate to use potent cortisol blocking meds unless you have a diagnosis from an endocrinologist and are being monitored very closely by one.

Cortisol blocking drugs could cause adrenal insufficiency, which is really not good news.


Spironolactone causes breast growth in men, impotence, and menstrual disruption in women. As well as elevated potassium. It is a serious drug used in heart failure.

Mifepristone is a strictly controlled drug used for performing medical abortions.

Metyrapone is a very specialist drug which is only suitable for treating severe cortisol excess in Cushing's Syndrome. Reducing cortisol to below normal levels with metyrapone could make you seriously ill.

Fluconazole, an antifungal, has been tried in Cushing's Syndrome, but is not well proven for this use.
