An Introduction to Dosing With Toradol

The dosage of Toradol® (ketorolac tromethamine) your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • Your weight
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you are taking.
     
As always, do not adjust your Toradol dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

Toradol Dosage for Acute Pain
