The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Sprix (ketorolac tromethamine) Nasal Spray, for the short-term (up to 5 days) management of acute moderate to moderately severe pain that requires analgesia at the opioid level.

Sprix is a prescription intranasal formulation of the analgesic ketorolac, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), designed to provide ambulatory patients with a convenient, potent, and fast-acting option for acute moderate to moderately severe pain relief.

Ketorolac tromethamine is a frequently administered non-narcotic injectable analgesic for moderately severe pain in U.S. hospitals today. The approval of Sprix provides acute pain outpatients with a non-narcotic and easy-to-administer alternative to commonly prescribed opioids.
