Toradol contains the generic ingredient ketorolac, which is a type of medicine called a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Toradol tablets are used to treat moderate to severe acute pain.
Doctors prescribe Toradol tablets for short-term use as pain relief after surgery, after labour or after injury causing muscle or joint pain. Usually, doctors prescribe Toradol tablets for no more than five days after surgery or no more than seven days for musculoskeletal pain.
When there is injury to the body, cyclo-oxygenase (COX) is involved in the production of prostaglandins, which causes pain, swelling and inflammation. Toradol works by blocking the production of these prostaglandins, thereby relieving pain and inflammation.
The usual adult dose is 10mg taken orally every four to six hours as required for five or seven days, depending on the medical condition. If possible, you should take the lowest dose of this medication for the shortest time period. To lessen stomach upset, take Toradol immediately after a meal or with food or milk. You should remain standing or sitting upright for about 15 to 30 minutes after taking the medicine, which helps to prevent irritation.
These may not be all the side effects of Toradol 10mg.
Do not take Toradol if you have had or are planning to have heart bypass surgery, heart failure, bleeding disorders, an active ulcer, inflammatory bowel disease, liver or kidney disease or high potassium in the blood.
Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, atherosclerosis, poor circulation to your extremities, a previous ulcer, liver, biliary, pancreatic or renal problems.
Store Toradol at room temperature away from light. Do not keep outdated medicine or medicine no longer needed. Keep out of sight and reach of children.
The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) defines pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Acute pain usually has a recent onset and a short duration. It generally follows immediately after surgery or trauma and has a known cause. The intensity of acute pain is greatest at the onset of injury and decreases with healing. Acute pain is usually from a specific reason such as labour pain or postoperative pain. It may be recurrent, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Particularly after surgery, patients will feel pain, which needs to be managed so that the patient is able to breathe, cough and move around after surgery. The degree of postoperative pain experienced by individuals may vary for different reasons, such as the site of the operation.
