What is the rationale for limiting toradol to short-term use? I have seen much more harm from other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

NSAIDs can be classified by anti-inflammatory potency and GI toxicity. Toradol has very potent anti-inflammatory properties and carries a higher risk of complications (GI bleeding and renal failure) than many of the less potent NSAIDs.
