Pharmacological properties
The drug in question Medrolgyn belongs to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used in ophthalmic practice.
The main active ingredient is ketorolac in the form of tromethamine.
It has an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic effect.
The drug owes its action to the fact that it has the property of inhibiting the biosynthesis of prostaglandins – lipid mediator substances with physiological activity, derivatives of prostanoic acid.
By themselves, prostaglandins are not pain mediators, and do not cause inflammation. At the same time, these substances provide sensitization of the responsible receptors with respect to pain mediators (histamine and bradykinin).
As a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent, ketorolac has the ability to block cyclooxygenase, reducing the production of prostaglandins, which blocks the development of inflammatory processes, as well as reducing the sensation of pain.

Medrolgyn is used to treat pain and inflammation of non-infectious origin, including after cataract surgery.
