  • Ketorolac/toradol IM 60mg while breast feeding

    I have had a serious migraine. I received a 60mg intramusular injection of ketorolac. Safe while breast feeding or should I pump and dump and formula need.

    We don't have any data on the transfer of Injectable Ketorolac into human milk. That said, it is a typical Nonsteroidal analgesic and most of them barely even transfer into milk. Orally, very little penetrates the milk compartment (About 0/2% of the maternal dose).

    If you want to be especially safe, I'd wait about 4 hours and the levels would be much lower.
