Toradol (generic name: Ketorolac) belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Toradol is used for the short-term treatment of moderate to severe pain in adults, usually after surgery.
Follow the directions for using this medicine provided by your doctor. Take Toradol exactly as directed.
Take this medication by mouth, usually every 4 or 6 hours with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters) unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Do not lie down for at least 30 minutes after taking this drug. Take it with food, milk, or an antacid to prevent stomach upset.
Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Do not increase your dose, take it more often than prescribed, or use it for more than 5 days in total (injection and tablets). Do not take more than 40 milligrams per day of Toradol by mouth.
If you are taking this drug on an "as needed" basis (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur.

you are allergic to any medicines;
you have any serious medical conditions;
you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
