About KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE

KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE belongs to a group of medicines called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID) indicated for the short-term management of moderate to severe acute postoperative pain. Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, which causes uncomfortable sensations in the body.
 
KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE contains 'ketorolac tromethamine', which works by inhibiting the synthesis of certain chemical messengers in the body, such as prostaglandins, which are responsible for causing pain and inflammation. Thereby, KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE helps provide relief from pain.
 
In some cases, you may experience common side effects such as nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, diarrhoea, constipation, gas, and dizziness. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if the side effects persist or worsen.
 
Avoid taking KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE should not be given to children below 16 years as safety and efficacy have not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol with KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE as it could lead to increased dizziness; it might also increase the risk of stomach bleeding. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medicines to rule out any side effects/interactions.
