Ketorolac Nasal Spray Drug Information
If you have moderate to moderately severe pain, your healthcare provider may prescribe ketorolac nasal spray (SprixTM). This medication is specifically approved for short-term use, which means no longer than five days. It works by blocking the action of certain hormones in the body that cause pain and inflammation.
Ketorolac nasal spray comes in the form of a nasal spray and is used every six to eight hours. Nasal discomfort, a runny nose, and throat irritation are some of the possible side effects of this medication.
Because ketorolac nasal spray is not suitable for everyone, it's important to review the safety information for this drug with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other health issues you may have, such as asthma, high blood pressure, or bleeding problems.
