Discussions that mention ketorolac

Pain Management board

Hey Wolftrades, nice to (see) you again, last we posted (on A&R) I said I couldn't take anything for my back, and then my back went out. :(

Are we talking about the same thing? Toradol (ketorolac) not Ultram (tramadol)? Oh, please don't tell me it's like tramadol. They say you can only take it for 5 days or it kills your kidneys, and is like taking a huge dose of ibuprofen, it's an NSAID. I have no desire to take it again, a few doses and I swear my back is cured, I think that much anti-inflammatory action just killed all the inflammation. Today I'm switching back to advil for 2 reasons: 1) toradol is strong and makes me a little sleepy and 2) I want to have the rest of my pills around for the next time, given how hard it was to convince them to give it to me. (I so hear you on getting pain pills, I had to beg, plead, get a nurse on my side and then go through a doctor shift change to get this stuff, and it's, I don't think, even a narcotic!!!)

BTW, after all that stuff about hating pharma (swear I didn't/don't) I'm thinking I want to find the guy who invented this drug and buy him a lear jet. ;)
