Toradol is in a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory
drugs (NSAIDs). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation
and pain in the body.
Toradol is used short-term (5 days or less) to treat moderate to
severe pain, usually after surgery. It is used alone or in combination
with other medicines.
Toradol may also be used for purposes other than those listed in the medication guide where I found this information.
