I take Ketorolac for my migraine headaches but taking one or even two just isn't enough. I have several other Rx meds I take (both as preventative and pain relief) but was wondering if there are OTC meds I can take with the Ketorolac (obviously not Ibuprofen) that might help combat the pain.
Ketorolac is a non steroidal anti inflammatory and that can not be taken with other non steroidal anti inflammatories such as ibuprofen or naproxen as you have shared. The only other pain reliever that is OTC is acetominophen which you could take with the Ketorolac. Otherwise, you would have to resort to a prescription pain reliever.
Dear rich... the only thing I can add to what Laurie said that... I am sure u know this but ketarolac (Toradol) can only be taken for 10 days to prevent some gastric erosion. It IS a wonderful analgesic. I took couple of them yesterday and today and they worked wonderfully!!! Good luck and feel better.
I had migrains for a long time went to the hospital 2 to 3 times a week, an old country doctor told me migrains are caused by tention and gave me Toradol injections to use at home it is an anti inflamitory so it shrinks the swelling and the migrain goes away its wonderful I seldom have to use it now no more migrains. also there is a medicine over the counter called Excedrin Tension I take if I start to get a headache, It is wonderful works very well. Dont make the mistake of buying Excedrin Migrain it does not work.
