If you’re struggling with pain, getting through your day can feel almost impossible. Whether you’re dealing with migraines or back pain, finding relief can be the key to getting back to your normal routine.
At Mobile IV Nurses, we use the IV pain med Toradol to help patients temporarily take care of their pain symptoms. With our IV infusions for pain, you can experience the relief you’ve been looking for!
What is Toradol?
Toradol is a nonsteroidal non-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that also goes by the generic name ketorolac. This medication decreases prostaglandins in the body (lipids that cause inflammation and pain), which helps reduce pain. Its effects are similar — yet more powerful — to common over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen.
We use Toradol in our IV treatments to help support patients with conditions like athletic injuries, headaches, and post-surgery pain. We’ve even seen success using this IV therapy for joint pain and arthritis!
What are the Benefits of a Toradol IV?
There are many benefits of using IV pain meds like Toradol for short-term pain relief. These include:
- Non-narcotic: Toradol does not use opioids to relieve your pain. Instead, it reduces your symptoms by targeting the source (prostaglandins) — giving you safer relief with fewer side effects.
- Non-addictive: Toradol is a more powerful form of over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin or ibuprofen, but you don’t have to worry about any risk of addiction.
- Fast and effective: When you get a pain management infusion, your body gets the medication without passing through your digestive tract, so you’ll receive a more potent dose of medication, and your body will process it more quickly. With IV pain meds, you may notice relief before your 30-minute infusion is even over!
Recommended IV Therapy for Pain
We recommend that patients seeking IV therapy for pain try our Myers’ Cocktail with a Toradol add-in. The Myers’ Cocktail is filled with essential ingredients like vitamin C (an anti-inflammatory), vitamin B complex (helps restore energy production), zinc (helps regulate pain processing), and more.
This IV treatment gives your body all the vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes it needs for peak performance, which will help you improve your overall health. Then, the Toradol add-in (and any other add-ins you want to include) can target your pain and help you feel better almost instantly.
Does Toradol Have Side Effects?
Toradol is a safe and effective IV pain med. However, it can have some side effects. Common side effects include:
- Indigestion or nausea
- Stomach cramps
- Reactions at the injection site
How Long Does Toradol Last?
The pain-relieving effects of Toradol typically last about six hours, with patients often feeling effects within 30 minutes of receiving the infusion. However, the vitamins and minerals in your IV therapy offer longer-lasting health benefits, so you will enjoy greater health and wellness long after the Toradol has worn off.
