    I have a package of a few pills labeled Ketahob. I am assuming this is from Russia. The little information I found says it's a painkiller. I'm hoping it's an opiate. Does anyone know what these are?

    Good catch, Mick. Feed this one to the toilet. Bleeding ulcers are no fun.

    its Toradol, an NSAI with a really nasty side effects profile.

    it is a is competitive, nonselective COX blocker and inhibits prostaglandin production.

    not too keen on nephritis or gi bleeding, hm.
