Toradol Safety

Toradol® (ketorolac tromethamine) is a medication licensed for pain relief. Specifically, it can help treat moderate-to-severe pain caused by things such as certain procedures, kidney stones, back problems, and cancer. Although this medicine is generally considered safe, Toradol does pose certain risks.
 
Toradol belongs to a class of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It's important to note that certain problems can develop in people taking these products. For example, Toradol has been reported to cause potentially serious (even life-threatening) problems in the stomach and intestines, including bleeding, stomach ulcers, and holes in the stomach or intestines.
 
Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any signs or symptoms of stomach ulcers or bleeding, including:
 
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Black, tarry stools
  • Vomiting blood.
     
Other safety concerns that may occur in people using Toradol include headaches, dizziness, diarrhea, and nausea. This medicine is not safe for anyone who has a stomach ulcer or women in the third trimester of pregnancy.
