Taking an NSAID can increase your risk of life-threatening heart or circulation
problems, including heart attack or stroke. This risk will increase the longer you
use an NSAID. Do not use this medicine just before or after having heart bypass surgery
(also called coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG).
NSAID's can also increase your risk of serious effects on the stomach or
intestines, including bleeding or perforation (forming of a hole). These conditions can
be fatal and gastrointestinal effects can occur without warning at any time while you
are taking an NSAID. Older adults may have an even greater risk of these
serious gastrointestinal side effects.
Do not use this medication if you are allergic to Toradol, aspirin, or other NSAIDs, or
if you have:
- severe kidney disease
- a bleeding or blood clotting disorder
- a closed head injury or bleeding in your brain
- a stomach ulcer or a history of stomach or intestinal bleeding
- if you are breast-feeding a baby
Before taking Toradol, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:
- a history of heart attack, stroke, or blood clot
- heart disease, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure
- liver or kidney disease

If you have any of these conditions, you may not be able to use Toradol, or you may need
