Doctor insights on:
Ketorolac Tromethamine Abuse
Why: The correct answer is that it's okay to do both. However one would have to ask why do smoke weed in the first place? Weed is very addictive and really has no role unless you are terminally i'll and dying from cancer. In my proactive if you smoke weed and you do not have cancer you see the psychologist and addictionologist.
Generally No: It is common to use these together to abort an acute migraine.
Can ketorolac be given for more than 5 days if you either break up the doses like every other day or wait a week before doing another 5 day course?
Ketorolac: Ketorolac is indicated for the short-term (up to 5 days in adults) management of moderately severe acute pain that requires analgesia at the opioid level and only as continuation treatment following IV or IM dosing of ketorolac, if necessary. The total combined duration of use of ketorolac tablets and injection should not exceed 5 days because of the increased risk of serious adverse events.
My dr gave me ketorolac (10 mg pill form) but didn't tell me how long I can take it for (I've heard 5 days from other people). Is this true?
Oral ketorolac: 10mg 4 times daily for up to 7 days. Always ask your doctor before taking any new medicines.See 2 more doctor answers
POT: We doctors do not accept any illicit drug use, no matter how you justify the use. Also, pot is known to trigger severe mental health issues which otherwise would not have come to light. Genetically predisposed severe mental problems [schizophrenia-bipolar-severe anxiety depression] [that were to occur but not by good lifestyle] would be activated early by pot. Once activated, always on!
Both are different: Both are totally different, the former is in the NSAID class and the latter in the opioid class. Both have side effects that are class specific as well. So the answer is it depends some people do well with nsaids and there's with opioids. One has to look at what is being treated. Talk to your md.
What happens if someone was given ketorolac tromethamine mixed with ephedrine sulfate and phenalephrine HCl via needle?
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.
Low Risk: It is common to use these together for pain but ketorolac should not be used for more than 5 continuous days due to severe GI injury potential.
No: I would discard pills that have expired. If you don't have the original bottle, I would discard them. I would talk with your doctor if you are having pain. Three years sounds like too long to keep.
