Ketorolac Drug

If you are dealing with pain following a procedure, your healthcare provider may prescribe a drug called ketorolac tromethamine (Toradol®). This medication is a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) approved for the short-term relief of pain that is moderate to severe in nature. It works by blocking the action of certain hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. Ketorolac comes in the form of a tablet, and can also be administered as an injection or through an intravenous line (IV).
