Were you looking for information about Ketorolac? Ketoralac is a common misspelling of ketorolac.
 
Ketorolac tromethamine (Toradol®) is a prescription drug used for the short-term treatment of moderate to severe pain. It belongs to a class of drugs known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). The drug is most often used to treat pain following a procedure, but it may also be used to relieve back pain, cancer pain, and pain caused by kidney stones.
 
The medication is available in tablet form; it may also be administered through an IV or injection. Side effects of ketorolac most commonly include such things as headache, nausea, and abdominal pain (or stomach pain). Because this medication may not be suitable for everyone, talk to your healthcare provider before taking it if you have liver disease, asthma, diabetes, or congestive heart failure.
