I take IM Toradol, 30mg, bid, for chronic headaches. Does this sound out of ordinary?

Thanks for posting your query.

Toradol contains Ketorolac which is a Migraine disease, it is usually prescribed when other medications have not worked. Your chronic headaches can be due to Migraines and hence you have been asked to take this drug for headaches.

Along with this medicine, you can try other lifestyle measures for migraines. First of all lifestyle modification is required.

Go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day.

Exercise regularly (daily if possible) and limit stress through regular exercise and relaxation techniques. Avoid bright or flashing lights and wear sunglasses if sunlight is a trigger.

Also identify and avoid foods that trigger headaches by keeping a headache and food diary and limit caffeine consumption to less than two caffeine-containing beverages a day.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.
