Frequently asked questions about ketorolac

What is ketorolac?

Ketorolac is a prescription pain medication and anti-inflammatory drug. Ketorolac is commonly prescribed for one of two reasons: either as a topical treatment for eye irritation caused by allergies or surgical procedures or as an oral medication for pain that may occur in the body after surgery. Ketorolac is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is non-habit forming.

What is ketorolac used to treat?

Ketorolac is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). These drugs reduce pain and inflammation. Ketorolac, specifically, is prescribed for one of two reasons:

- Pain management: Ketorolac may be administered as an IV injection, oral tablet, or topical eye spray as a treatment for pain following an operation. Eye spray is generally prescribed for patients who are recovering from cataract surgery or other forms of eye operations.

- Topical eye drops: Ketorolac eye drops are prescribed as a topical treatment to help prevent itchiness, burning, and stinging by reducing inflammation caused by seasonal allergies.

How does ketorolac work?

Ketorolac is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). These drugs work by blocking enzymes that cause inflammation - your body’s natural response to injury, or illness. By blocking the production of these enzymes, ketorolac reduces the pain and discomfort caused by the inflammatory response.

As a method of pain management after an operation, ketorolac is administered either as an oral tablet, IV injection, or eye drop (for eye operations) to reduce the body’s inflammatory response. This can ease discomfort and minimize swelling.

As a method of topical treatment, ketorolac blocks your body’s natural inflammatory response to irritants - which helps treat and prevent the itchiness, burning, and stinging eye symptoms caused by seasonal allergies.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant. Ketorolac can affect fetal health and cause problems with delivery.

What is the typical starting dose of ketorolac?

The typical starting dose of ketorolac depends on your diagnosis, age, and any pre-existing medical conditions you may have.
