Toradol Medication for Pain

Toradol® (ketorolac tromethamine) is a medicine used to treat moderate-to-severe pain. This prescription medication is only approved for short-term use, which means no more than five days for adults, and children should receive no more than one dose. It comes in the form of a tablet or injection, and can also be administered through an intravenous (IV) line.
 
As a pain medication, Toradol is in a class of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is most often used to relieve pain following a procedure, but it can also be helpful for kidney stones, back pain, or cancer pain.
 
Although most people tolerate Toradol well, it is not suitable for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and nonprescription drugs), as well as any other medical conditions you may have. Possible side effects include headaches, nausea, and dizziness.
