Reviews for Ketorolac to treat Pain

Sort by:

Toradol IM (ketorolac): "Kidney stones. Size of marble in each kidney. ER. ER nurse with compassion and intelligence as I writhed in agaony, injected me in my bottomside. Instant relief. Exhaled and could taste the keytone of the torodol. Passed out. Separate occasion. Wish for death migraine. Usually 800 mg ibuprofin and 2 cups of fresh coffee sometimes with pseudoephedrine 60 mg and dark quiet and proper pillow and don't move for 2 hours, will win it for me but was on day 3, out of imitrex too. Went to ER. Dr. with experience, shot to bottomside, lights out. Took bout an hour for complete relief. But began to ease pain right away. I've tried all the dopiates, and the result is no pain relief, nausea or unco science."

"Had the most horrible abscessed tooth pain. Never ever felt such pain in my life. Have had some stomach issues with advil and surprisingly not with the Toradol. It takes a while to kick in, maybe half an hour but definitely did the job. Better than T3 for sure and it didn't leave me drowsy, if anything it gave me energy and I could concentrate more. Too bad than it's not recommended to be used for more than 5 days"

Toradol IV/IM (ketorolac): "I got Toradol IV for pain due to kidney stones and infection. It didn't help the pain very much, and it burned. After they took the IV out, I sprayed blood all over the ER. I bled from the injection site for many hours. Never again."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I took one 10 mg at the onset of migraine, it did nothing. I took a second 10 mg after an hour and still no relief. I felt no relief at all, not even slight."

"I have had chronic migraines for 15 years, they became daily about 10 years ago. None of the triptans (imitrex, maxalt, etc.) Work for me, nor do a lot of others. I was prescribed stadol, which is highly addictive and has a fast tolerance rate, and after that I did not believe tordol could work, I relied solely on narcotics, despite rebounds. I would be given tordol in the urgent care, and it didn't work (as I believed it wouldn't!) After the doctors stopped giving me stadol and a couple years later I tried tordol... only this time I told myself it would work... it has been my miracle drug ever since. It isn't easy to do deep IM on myself, and sometimes it really hurts, but I have only had to go to the ER once in the past 18 months."

"I had such a severe toothache and nothing including Percocet took it away I went to the ER after crying uncontrollably and was given Toradol IM. My pain went away within 5 minutes. Not going to lie, the shot hurt but it was worth it"

Toradol (ketorolac): "Was on day 5 of a left sided migraine, after been given tramadol which only made me faint every time I stood up was taken to emergency room. Given Toradol through injection only slightly touched the excruciating pain in my head. Was given morphine which proved more successful. However the next day I am back to a full blown headache with pins and needles down face. Zilch results ehh.."

"Neck and upper back pain. Progressed to numbness in left pinky and ring finger. Then odd sensation painful but agitating pulses in medial arm. Pain level 7 (constants edge of tears). History of neck pain at c5/6. So I tried to treat at home with rest, naproxen, flexerol, and traction. Pain and symptoms got worse. Went to ER as I was dropping things in the kitchen. Don't like narcotics. Given toradol injection. WOW! Quick relief went from 7 to 2. Stiffness in neck reduced and pain in shoulder. Still numb in fingers but media arm better. Gave oral steroids and oral toradol. Pain is increasing again, but managed."

"Kidney Stone & Infection as a result... Asked for it specifically after the shot was effective Works well for me in pill form too Seems to help with swelling & inflammation too I am pleased with it. I'd rather be taking it than a narcotic drug too."

Toradol (ketorolac): "Went to ER with severe flank pain, was given Toradol via my IV and it worked miracles -- pain went from an 8 to a 2 in about 15 minutes. Found out I had a couple kidney stones and was prescribed 10 mg tablets to take for several days. They barely worked at all, had to go back a couple days later with my pain just as bad and be prescribed something else. So, Toradol is GREAT when administered through an IV, not so good in pill form."

Toradol (ketorolac): "It is the ONLY reason I am able to sit at this computer and type right now. 2 weeks ago I got a very very bad virus, was dehydrated & had my 1st migraine at 32 years old. I can't even begin to tell you the pain I have felt over the past 2 weeks with it not letting up AT ALL. I have had blood work, spinal tap, ct scan, mri, numerous pain meds while I was in the hospital 3 different times over the past 2 weeks. My doctor's office gave me a shot of this 4 days ago and it was the ONLY relief I had felt. My doctor gave me the oral form this past Friday and my headache is starting to break. This may not work for everyone, but for me it has literally been a miracle! I wish I could take it more than 5 days, but hopefully my migraine will be gone!!"

Toradol (ketorolac): "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."

"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): "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."

"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): "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): "I was dealing with a migraine of all migraines. By the third day straight I could not even brush my hair due to the sensitivity of my scalp. My physician gave me the shot in my bum and with in 5 minutes my ears, eyes, and temples were already loosing pressure. By an hour pain free and have been for the past 3 days."

Toradol (ketorolac): "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): "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"
