Ketorloac - Toradol®

Ketorloac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) in both injectable and oral form that has been found to be as effective as a narcotic in treating severe headache pain. NSAIDs are effective in treating acute headaches and they are not habit forming. However, as a class these agents can cause nausea and stomach distress. Even Ketorloac as an injection has this side effect potential. Gastrointestinal bleeding or stomach ulcers can occur. Long-term use can contribute to kidney damage.

Ketorloac injection is frequently chosen for patients in the emergency room presenting with severe headache. Ketorloac tablets should be used for only short-term treatment (i.e., about five days)and are less effective than the injectable forms.
