Can you smoke weed while taking ketorolac?

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.

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.

Can you smoke weed while taking apo-ketorolac?

Can you smoke weed while taking apo-ketorolac?

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!

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.

Can a person use pain pills that 3 years old called ketorolac 10mg?

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.
