Ketorolac is indicated for short-term management of moderate to severe postoperative pain. Concerns about the high incidence of reported side effects led to restriction in its dosage and maximum duration of use. Maximum duration of treatment should not exceed 5 days for tablets (per package insert), or 2 days for continuous daily dosing with intravenous or intramuscular formulations. The ophthalmic formulation can be used instead of steroidal anti inflammatories in cases where a raised intraocular pressure (glaucoma) is to be avoided.
However, you could please seek more info from a pharmacist/doc who may have prescribed the med, take care.
This is an old question, but I've got MY answer for it. I was just put on a short round of the oral form of Toradol (ketorolac 10mg) for multiple herniated disc in my L/S spine by an ER physician. I just took my first dose about an hour ago, and yes, it's definitely making me feel kinda loopy and somewhat euphoric. This is actually really saying something for me personally because I've been on oxycodone 15mg for a few years now, and other opiate and sedative medications over the years. I'm pretty sure that this results will not happen for everyone, everyone's brain chemistry is different. Just be careful and don't NOT use this medication while driving until you have a couple days to know how it's going to effect you.
