Pain relief, HR up: Ketorolac (Toradol), is a strong NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory), ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is like adrenaline, and phenylephrine is a vasoconstrictor. So... the toreador will reduce pain, the the other two, at high enough doses, will increase the heart rate, or just vasoconstrictor and reduce bleeding.
