Ketorolac 10 mg Tablets
Ketorolac tromethamine (Toradol®) tablets only come in one strength -- ketorolac 10 mg tablets. However, the injectable version of this medication is available in several strengths. Ketorolac may be given in a variety of ways for pain relief. For adults, it may be administered through an IV or an injection on an as-needed basis or every six hours. Ketorolac may also be given in tablet form to those people who have received the medication through an IV or injection.
The tablet dose for adults under the age of 65 without any other medical problems is ketorolac 20 mg for the first dose, followed by ketorolac 10 mg every four to six hours as needed. For those who are over the age of 65, those who have kidney problems, and those who weigh less than 110 pounds, the usual recommended dose of ketorolac tablets is 10 mg every four to six hours. In either group, the maximum daily dose should not exceed 40 mg.
Do not take ketorolac for more than five days. This includes both days when you receive the medicine through an IV or injection and those days when you take the medicine by mouth.
