Toradol Oral

If you have moderate-to-severe pain, you may benefit from Toradol® (ketorolac tromethamine). This medication is approved for short-term use in adults and children (age two and older), and is available only with a prescription. It is used to treat several conditions, such as pain following a procedure, kidney stones, and cancer pain.
 
Toradol is available in oral or injectable forms, and can also be administered through an intravenous (IV) line. Pain relief usually begins about 30 minutes after a person receives a dose of Toradol. The maximum effect occurs within two to three hours and lasts, on average, four to six hours.
 
Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Possible side effects include nausea, dizziness, and headaches.
