Toradol Injection for acute pain:
Ketorolac tromethamine (Toradol) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication used for the short-term treatment of moderate to severe pain. You will be administered a dose directed by Dr. Tarbox or PA Thomas into a muscle. You may have a maximum of 2 injections within a 7 day period unless otherwise directed by Dr. Tarbox or PA Thomas. Ketorolac should not be used for mild or long-term painful conditions such as arthritis. This drug may cause serious, rarely fatal bleeding from the stomach or intestines. We do not recommend the use of this medication if you have stomach or intestinal problems such as bleeding or ulcers. We also do not recommend taking Toradol if you took high doses of aspirin (325mg) or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs within 48 hours from requested injection. Pain at the injection site, dizziness, drowsiness, or stomach upset may occur.
