Hi..don't take it for many days. It can cause impact on kidney. In fact any pain killer taken more than 7 days. Stop tablet and visit dentist for treatment. Regards

Why are you taking Ketorol DT since so many days? Any medication taken for a long time will cause side effects. Tooth pain has a definite cause like deep decay, gum disease and many more. Visit your dentist and get the cause treated so that there is no need to take any medicines. Regards

In case this is a prescribed medication, then the prescrition will definetly mention the duration. If your self medicated then you need to understand that medication are given for transitory period. Toothache requires definitive treatment and medications cannot cure it.

Like with any NSAID group of drugs, Not advisable to take for more than 5 days, You should consult a dental health provider as first priority. The side effects of prolonged use include risk of serious stomach bleeding and other side effects. This side effect can occur without warning. Do remember take any medication at lowest effective dose for shortest possible time. Do not increase the dose , take it more frequently, or take it longer than 5 days. Hope that helps
