Toradol Shot

Toradol® (ketorolac tromethamine) is a medication licensed to treat moderate-to-severe pain. It is often used to relieve pain following a procedure, but it can also help with pain caused by kidney stones, back problems, or cancer.
 
This prescription medication can be administered orally in tablet form, through an intravenous (IV) line, or in the form of an injection (a shot). Toradol is only approved for short-term use, meaning that adults should not use it for more than five days and children should only receive a single dose.
 
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.
