Ketorolac (Oral, Injection)

Ketorolac is given to patients after surgery to help manage pain related to the surgery. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication; it works by preventing the body from producing a substance that causes inflammation, pain and fever.

Warnings/Side Effects

It is not safe to use this medication for more than five days at a time. If pain persists beyond this time frame, patients should be prescribed other types of pain medication.

This medication should not be used after heart surgery, especially bypass surgery, because it increases the risk of heart attack or stroke. It also can cause kidney damage and therefore should not be used after kidney surgery.

Pregnant women and women who just gave birth should not use this drug, as it can harm fetuses and babies.
