Description

Toradol, known generically as Ketorolac Tromethamine, is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used primarily for the short-term management of moderate to severe pain. It is often prescribed for postoperative pain or acute conditions where opioid alternatives are necessary or preferred. Unlike other NSAIDs, Toradol is potent and can be administered orally, intramuscularly, or intravenously.
