Q. Is ketorolac same as tramadol, aspirin, codeine, acetaminophen?
No. Ketorolac is non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) while tramadol, codeine are opioid (derived from opium) pain killers. Aspirin and acetaminophen are NSAIDs different than ketorolac

No. Opioid agents (hydrocodone) are generally stronger pain relievers than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug like ketorolac
Q. Is ketorolac a muscle relaxer, blood thinner, or sulfa drug?
Ketorolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and can be used to treat mild pain and inflammation. It is however extensively prescribed to treat pain occurring after eye surgery and administered directly into the eyes. It is not a muscle relaxant, blood thinner or sulfa drug
Q. Is ketorolac addictive or controlled substance?
No. Ketorolac is not addictive or controlled substance however it belongs to schedule H drug category and can be obtained only on production of valid prescription
Q. Can I take ketorolac with Vicodin, Aleve, ibuprofen, oxycodone, tramadol, hydrocodone, cyclobenzaprine, Tylenol or naproxen?
Tylenol is the brand name of paracetamol (acetaminophen). Aleve is the brand name of naproxen. Vicodin contains paracetamol and hydrocodone. It is not advisable to take two or more non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) together as it increases the risk of adverse effects. Therefore Tylenol, Aleve, ibuprofen shouldn't be taken with ketorolac. Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant and may be given if ketorolac is used as tablet or injection to treat pain in muscles and joints

Yes. NSAIDs may cause sleepiness or fluid retention in some patients but small doses given in eyes are unlikely to cause such effect with ketorolac
