In brief: Depends

The treatment options depend on the cause of the cushing's syndrome.
If the cause is due to overuse of steroids, then the treatment is to lower the dose. This is the best case scenario. Other treatment options involve: surgery, radiation therapy, and medications. A new drug was recently approved for cushing's syndrome on 2/17/2012.
