Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "From reading these I can see everyone is different. For me, on an IV drip, it completely eliminated the pain, gone. Taking pills after the Torodol wore off did nothing. Eventually threw them all up and went back to the ER."

For Pain: "I was prescribed these for inflammation on top of my usual hydrocodone.....It did NOTHING for my pain. So much pain and this is like a placebo pill. "

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "Started taking toradol before diagnosed with fibromyalgia, it did little for my joint pain but helped some with my arthritis. For fibromyalgia it was pretty usless and I ended up after several long painful months having to go to opiates and chose to leave my job verses caring for patients while medicated."

For Pain: "Went to the ER with severe kidney stone pain (a 12). As soon as I got into a room they gave me a shot. It didn't take long to give me some wonderful relief (within 20 minutes, probably less). They gave me a prescription of Torodol in pill form in case I had an additional stone issue. It took 45 minutes to work and it allowed me to get thru several Christmas events until I passed the stone or had surgery. Fabulous stuff! I don't go anywhere without it."

Toradol (ketorolac) for : "I had to go to the ER at 3am with intense pain on my right side. A cat scan revealed a kidney stone. They gave me 2 injections of Dilaudid without any pain relief whatsoever. When they found out I had a kidney stone they gave me Toradol IV and within 15-20 minutes I finally got some relief. I was overjoyed!"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "This is my emergency migraine medicine. I am on propranolol daily, and take rizatriptan when I have an actual migraine. Once in a while, that doesn't help, and I have to go to my doctor for an emergency shot of toradol. I can have a migraine so bad that I can't open my eyes or speak, but this takes care of it in about an hour. The only side effect I experience is fairly severe pain at the injection site for about 5 days."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "2-day migraine, ended up in urgent care. Wanted Vicodin they ended up giving me a shot of this. Waited 10 minutes for signs of allergic reaction. Pain was reduced although not gone. Left urgent care. 30 minutes later full blown allergic reaction, swelling of face. My experience, this med is not nearly as good as vicodin. Allergic reaction for me marks this as never again."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I've had migraines for years, as you all know, they come and go. I've taken the Imitrex shot and orally, Zomig, Maxalt, among others. My family practicioner prescribes me Flexeril on top of Maxalt. Today, though, I ran out, and had to go to a clinic, and even though I fear needles, I asked for the shot. This was a migraine I knew I was no match for, as my pain threshold peaked a number of times. Immediate burning in my bottom and leg, but it did work well. I wish this were able to be prescribed"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I went to the ER w what I thought was severe kidney pain, I was in hysterics every couple of minutes. They gave me an IV of toradol and I waited, and cried, and waited, and cried. 7 hours later I was still balling my eyes out. The doctor said my organs were fine, but I have intramuscular pain. So as far as that kinda pain goes, in my experience, doesn't do a thing to help. Tho I will say I didn't experience any side affects - positive or negative"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "Went in to my doctor after a 3 day migraine. My head hurt so bad they had to turn the lights off in the exam room.

The gave me the shot in my thigh it stung for about 5 minutes. My thigh still hurts but ill take it over that migraine any day"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Postoperative Pain: "I'm three days post operation for a hemorrhoidectomy and a fissure repair. The pain is horrible, but the Toradol is working well. It works much better than the narcotics prescribed (Tramadol)."

Toradol IM (ketorolac) for Pain: "I use to get Toradol I.M injections for cyclic vomiting syndrome. My stomach pain becomes very severe at times and Toradol 1ml injection is the only thing that will stop the pain when I'm having an episode."

For Pain: "I went into the ER today for severe pain in my shoulder. After an X-ray it was confirmed to be calcific tendonitis. I hadn't slept in 3 days because of the throbbing of pain. Was given a shot of Toradol and within 30 mins the pain went from a 10 to about a 3. It stung for about 20 min but after that was gone. No side effects at all. Highly recommend for severe pain relief."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "After going to the dentist and starting on my meds from a root canal, I experienced severe pain. I was taking Tylenol 3 and Motrin with an antibiotic and could not bare the pain any longer. Went to ER and the Doc gave me a shot of Toradol and it was able to settle the pain till I see the dentist in the morning. A miracle pain medicine."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I have had migraines for 40 years and Botox injections have worked well for the past 2 years but since October ( it is now January) they are starting to come back with a vengeance. I was having them every day over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and my doctor put me on a Prednisone pack for 5 days and I felt great but as soon as I quit taking it, the headaches came back. They were mild and then 3 days later I felt pretty good but got an aura, so I knew a bad one was coming. Sure enough, a bad one woke me up and it was one of the worst ones I have had in years. I called my doctor and they suggested I come in for a Toradal shot. I got the shot and in 10 minutes, sweet relief!! My arm hurt like hell for a while but who cares!"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I was on day 2 of a doozy of a migraine and ended up at urgent care. I have idiopathic intracranial hypertension which causes pretty much constant head pain, but had been non symptomatic for over a year. Up until today I would maybe get 1 migraine a month and taking Excedrin migraine would stop it in its tracks. This time it did nothing. My migraine was still going strong at 36 hours. A shot of Toradol in one hip and Imitrex in the other and I feel like a different person! Better within the hour! I would give it a ten but as others have mentioned, it was pretty darn painful when injected! Definitely a burning/stinging sensation for about 20 minutes. This was my first experience with both of these medicines but I am amazed!"

For Pain: "Was prescribed for kidney stone pain, and got very little relief. For me, a single recommended 10 mg pill worked about as well as 2 ibuprofen - a double dose did work a bit, but again - not better than 800 mg of ibuprofen. Thankfully, I also received a prescription for hydrocodone - which, used sensibly - can take out all but the very worst kidney stone pain. "

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "Greatest medication I have ever taken. I suffer from severe headaches & migraines that I have endured for at least 25 years now. Up until today I never experienced anything that gave me 100% relief from the pain, and it was delivered very quickly! Within 1 hour or less, I had complete pain relief that I had been suffering from this last time for 2 whole days. I could not believe it. In fact, I did not even recall the name of the injection that the doctor gave me, so I called the office back to get the name of this miracle - Toradol. I never had ANY side effects and will forever be grateful to the doctor for using this injection on me."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "On Topamax for seizures, and Imitrex shots, and I still suffer severe migraines. 3-4 days in, I'll call my nurse practitioner, and God Bless Toradol! Less than a week ago, I had a migraine so severe, I passed out, landing face down on hard tile floor. 6 hours at the ER, a CAT scan, and having been given Compazine, Benadryl, Morphine, and an Imitrex shot, they FINALLY gave me Toradol in my IV, like I asked. Sweet relief! I'll be dipped if I can get my neurologist/PCP/nurse practitioner to prescribe Toradol tabs for when I'm at the 3 - 4 day of a migraine. I "get" how you have to be careful due to liver issues with Toradol - but they WILL prescribe a narcotic for the whiplash I'm suffering as a result!"

Toradol IM (ketorolac) for Pain: "Went to urgent care for neck, shoulder, and arm pain. Had taken ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin, and muscle relaxants to no avail. Given a shot in the hip. Felt tingling throughout my limbs but only slight decrease in neck pain. By the time I got home, less than 2 hours, pain was back at the same level as before the shot. "
