When you've suffered an injury or undergone surgery, you usually want to get back on your feet as soon as possible. Of course, you have to go through recovery first. And in many cases, that means putting up with some pain.
At Lone Star IV Medics, we want you to recover from your injury as quickly and painlessly as possible. That's why we offer Toradol IV therapy to patients in all the areas we serve. This medication can help reduce swelling and relieve pain, so you can heal up as comfortably as possible.
What is Toradol?
Toradol is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used for short-term pain relief. It is most commonly used for post-surgical recovery, but you can also use Toradol for fever, migraines, athletic injuries, and other painful conditions.
The active ingredient in Toradol is ketorolac tromethamine. This drug prevents your body from producing the natural chemicals that cause inflammation. Without these chemicals, you can experience less pain and swelling around your injury.
The Benefits of Toradol IVs
There are many benefits of a Toradol IV push — the first and most obvious being the pain relief that comes with the medication. Toradol is a popular choice for pain relief because it is not a narcotic and it's non-addictive. You can use Toradol to cope with short-term pain without any risks of developing dependency.
Additionally, there are some real benefits to getting a Toradol IV instead of taking oral supplements. When you get an IV treatment, your body can absorb the medication right away (rather than oral medicine that must go through your digestive system first). This means you can feel the effects of the Toradol almost instantly, and it doesn't lose any bioavailability in the process.
There are also benefits to getting a Toradol infusion from Lone Star IV Medics. Allow us to tell you a little about our team: We specialize in mobile IV therapy, so our teams bring the treatment straight to your home, office, or hotel. Our healthcare providers will assess your health and administer the IV. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and let the Toradol do its thing!
Of course, it is important to note that Toradol can have some side effects. These can include the following:
- Stomach Cramps
- Redness or swelling at the injection site
The Lone Star IV Medics team wants you to be as comfortable as possible during your IV therapy. If you experience any of these symptoms, let your nurse know, and we will do our best to help you feel better.
Lone Star IV Medics offers Toradol infusions as one of our additional add-ins. For just $30, you can add Toradol to a bag of saline or mix it into our Myers' Cocktail for pain relief and extra vitamins all in one.
