Ketorolac tromethamine 10 mg
Toromin tablet contains Ketorolac tromethamine it may exist in three crystal forms. All forms are equally soluble in water. Ketorolac molecular weight of ketorolac tromethamine is 376.41. Its molecular formula is C19H24N2O6.Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
Toromin that exhibits analgesic activity reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Ketorolac is used short-term (5 days or less) to treat moderate to severe pain.
- Reduce pain

- After surgery
Patients age 17 to 64: 20 mg PO once followed by 10 mg q4-6 hour prn not > 40 mg/day
Toromin tablet is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that exhibits analgesic activity in animal models. The mechanism of action of ketorolac, like that of other NSAIDs, is not completely understood but may be related to prostaglandin synthesis inhibition. The biological activity of ketorolac tromethamine is associated with the S-form. Ketorolac tromethamine possesses no sedative or anxiolytic properties. The peak analgesic effect of ketorolac tromethamine occurs within 2 to 3 hours
Toromin tablet is 100% absorbed after oral administration. Oral administration of ketorolac tromethamine after a high-fat meal resulted in decreased peak and delayed time-to-peak concentrations of ketorolac tromethamine by about 1 hour. Antacids did not affect the extent of absorption.
The mean apparent volume of ketorolac tromethamine following complete distribution was approximately 13 liters. This parameter was determined from single-dose data. The ketorolac tromethamine racemate has been shown to be highly protein bound (99%). Nevertheless, plasma concentrations as high as 10 mcg/ml will only occupy approximately 5% of the albumin binding sites. Thus, the unbound fraction for each enantiomer will be constant over the therapeutic range. A decrease in serum albumin, however, will result in increased free drug concentrations.
Toromin tablet is largely metabolized in the liver. The metabolic products are hydroxylated and conjugated forms of the parent drug. The products of metabolism, and some unchanged drug, are excreted in the urine.
The principal route of elimination of Toromin tablet and its metabolites is renal. About 92% of a given dose is found in the urine, approximately 40% as metabolites and 60% as unchanged ketorolac. Approximately 6% of a dose is excreted in the feces.
The half-life of the ketorolac tromethamine S-enantiomer was approximately 2.5 hours
