Ketorolac Shortage

The country and therefore the hospital is running out of ketorolac.

For patients who can take PO, ibuprofen is equally effective. Also, it is not well known that the analgesic ceiling for ketorolac is probably around 10 mg IV. I personally use 15 mg, and the hospital still has a reasonable stock of 15 mg vials, so consider this in patients whom you think would benefit from a parenteral NSAID.
