Just a heads-up.... dolac (ketorolac tromethamine) is for limited, short term use only and can have significant side effects, namely: Stomach upset is the most common, often with nausea, vomiting, bloating, gas, and loss of appetitemay. Some users may develop persistent stomach pain, black or bloody stools, skin rash, itching, breathing difficulties, edema (swelling of the feet or hands), ringing in the ears or vision changes while taking this medication. This medication may cause dizziness, drowsiness or blurred vision. Avoid activities requiring alertness if this occurs. Infrequently, this medication may increase the skin's sensitivity to sunlight. If this happens to you, avoid prolonged sun exposure, wear protective clothing and use a sunscreen. Avoid sunlamps. Be ceratin that doctor is aware of your medical history especially of any liver or kidney disease, blood disorders, ulcers, heart disease, alcohol use, high blood pressure, eye disease or allergies, especially drug allergies. Limit alcohol intake as it may intensify the drowsiness effect of this medication. This medicine may cause stomach bleeding. Daily use of alcohol, especially when combined with this medicine, may increase your risk for stomach bleeding. Do not take aspirin without consulting your doctor. Check the ingredients of any nonprescription medication you may be taking since many cough-and-cold formulas contain aspirin.
As you are aware, I'm sure, workers in Mexican pharmacies are not pharmacists, with rare exception. And Mexican doctors are just as prone as U.S. doctors to prescribe as instructed by pharmaceutical salesmen. Sorry to be so negative but the above is from personal and family experience and I felt that you should be aware... do homework on this one on the internet, if you wish. I truly hope that you pain can be safely taken care of.
