Ketorolac nasal spray can make diuretics less effective. If you use these medications together, your healthcare provider should monitor your kidney function, as well as how well your diuretic is working. You may need higher doses of the diuretic.
Using ketorolac nasal spray in combination with lithium reduces the ability to remove lithium from the body, thereby increasing lithium levels. If you take these medications together, make sure to watch for signs of lithium toxicity, such as weakness, tremors, excessive thirst, and confusion.
Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your lithium levels while you are using ketorolac nasal spray and may need to adjust your dose.
