christy,

 

As lynnelee said, Toradol is an NSAID. Also as she said, it's use needs to be limited to five days to avoid kidney issues. Another issue is possible medication overuse headache if it's use more than two or three days a week. See Medication Overuse Headache - When the Remedy Backfires for more information on this.

 

Hopefully, you're feeling better by now. If not, please call your doctor and let him know you need help with the pain.

 

Good luck,

Teri

Hope you are okay, now. Toradol is an NSAID, non-narcotic & can only be used for 5 days or it can knock out your kidneys..
