ketorolac for migraine?

26 Feb

REVIEW ARTICLE (click through for the details):

8 trials were included, involving over 321 (141 KET) patients.

looked at pain scores at 60 minutes




KET results in similar pain relief

less potentially addictive than meperidine

more effective than sumatriptan

however, it may not be as effective as metoclopramide/phenothiazine agents.



nice that an NSAID has some evidence for success (Naproxen for home has been done, also)

fine if its a clear migraine, probably a bit ballsy if a bleed is in your headache differential
