Toradol Drug Information

Toradol® (ketorolac tromethamine) is a medication used to reduce moderate-to-severe pain. It is available by prescription only and can be given in various forms, including tablets, injections, or through an intravenous (IV) line.
 
As a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Toradol works by inhibiting the action of prostaglandins, which are hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Although the medicine is generally well tolerated, it is not suitable for everyone. Before taking Toradol, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you have asthma, seizures, or problems with your heart, liver, or kidneys.
