Toradol (Ketorolac Tromethamine) Pain Medicine

Available only with a prescription, Toradol® (ketorolac tromethamine) is a medicine used to control short-term pain. As a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Toradol is typically used to treat moderate-to-severe pain following a procedure, and can also be helpful with treating pain due to kidney stones, back problems, or cancer.
As a pain medicine, Toradol works by inhibiting the action of certain hormones (prostaglandins) that cause inflammation and pain in the body. It can be given in the form of a tablet, injection, or through an intravenous (IV) line.
Although most people tolerate it well, this drug is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment with Toradol, the pain medicine's warnings and precautions should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you have and any other medications you are taking.
