"Experiencing severe chest pain two months after having two stints placed in my right coronary artery. I was given a shot of toradol and it zero effect whatsoever. Complete waste of time and money on my behalf. Not exactly what a goodies for this medication would be, but this is definitely not the occasion for this medication."

Toradol (ketorolac): "On day 3 of the worse migraine of my life, went into the doctor, was given a Toradol shot in my hip. My hip and low back hurt immediately after the injection. Had to wait 30 minutes to see what reaction I'd have. No pain relief after 30 minutes. They said within the hour I should be feeling like a new person. It's been an hour and half and I'm feeling no relief. I'm in so much pain, so nauseous, and beyond frustrated. Ugh... It works differently for everyone, but for me it didn't work at all."

"I suffer from interstitial cystitis and at the Dr's office yesterday I was given a shot of Toradol. amazing pain relief. Works way better for me than Oxy or Vicodin and non narcotic. My useage in future will be in pill form and only for a max of 5 days but this drug appears to be a life changer for me."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I was recently involved in a serious car accident. Now the physician even though he knew and sympathized with my pain that being pain in the back, down the spine, chest because airbag deployed only a little made my chest kiss the steering column. I hit my head I think. He said that I will be sore for a long time like 5-7 days minimum. He said that he would write something for pain so I could do my job and function at work. He brought back plain Tylenol (OTC brand) the exact same I could have received by just going to CVS. He wasn't too busy. He could have prescribed a low dose low addictive quality opiod and the alike such as Tramadol, codeine, etc. I wasted money and time. DEA plz stop scaring MD's from doing their job."

Toradol (ketorolac): "Didn't do anything just like taking 800 mg ibuprofen. I don't recommend anyone to ever get this if you are in severe pain."

"Chronic excruciating back pain, given Ketorolac 10mg ever 4 hours. Have taken two so far and it hasn't helped at all. Really disappointed as I haven't been sleeping, I'm suffering and Advil works better than this!"

Toradol IV/IM (ketorolac): "Was suddenly hit with debilitating pain in lower abdomen, back and pain under ribs on left. Was pain free at 5 pm. By 5:10 pm I was nearly screaming out from the pain. My husband took me to the ER. Was seen immediately by ER doctor and he ordered a CT scan and an IV was started. He was pretty sure I had a kidney stone which turned out to be shown on the CT. When I returned from getting the CT they gave me a large dose of IV morphine. It did absolutely nothing for my pain. A nurse kept telling me to "just relax and enjoy the morphine effects". When doctor came back and saw I was still in severe pain he told me that he was going to order an IV injection of Toradol. I didn't expect any relief but it was almost instant relief."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I had a severe migraine going on 3 days. I luckily only suffer from them about once every 5 years or so but when I do it's hell - I can't think or speak even remotely normal. I went to the E.R. and they gave me an Toradol IM shot. It relieved ALL of my pain in less than 15 mins and I suffered ZERO side effects. I gave the doctor on staff a nice big hug!"

Toradol (ketorolac): "I've had a chronic migraine issue but this time was different. The pain and tightness in my brain was unbearable for 5 whole days so I finally made a trip to the ER after calling to find out my neurologist can't see me for 4 months. I wait 4 hours for a doctor and they decide to push in the IV, 10mg dexamethasone, 10mg prochloperazine, 50mg Benadryl, NACL 0.9% 1000ml @2000mL/hour, and then the 'satanic drug from hell', Ketorolac 30mg aka Toradol 30mg. the nurse started pushing Toradol & Omg! My arm was on fire,my body hurt, so uncomfortable so terrible! and I'm someone who's pulled out their own nail with no pain Meds. It numbs ur senses and makes u too aware at the same time, couldnt cry couldnt talk! Terrible! Didn't even manage the pain."

"I've had about 4 kidney stones in my life. All extremely painful. Spent a couple of days in the hospital for one. But the last one I had, I was given a shot of Toredol and the pain went away within minutes. I went back for another shot the next day. The next day the stone passed. For me, this was a miracle drug."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I came into the ER a week-and-a-half ago with gallbladder-related symptoms, was given some Toradol, and this medication completely wiped out my pain. I was also given the same medication after my gallbladder was removed and had good pain relief postoperatively. Better than the narcotic meds, that's for sure!"

Toradol (ketorolac): "Presented with sever pain in my left rib cage. This pain started after I bent over to pick up something out of the ocean. Felt a pop which caused sever pain under my left rib cage. Breathing, moving, walking, getting up and down all caused sever pain that made me cry out. On the forth day I finally went to see if a th was broken. The Doctor ordered X-rays and gave me a shot of Toradol in the hip. Also gave me a script for Percoset which I have not taken yet. Within an hour I had some relief from the pain and was able to breath with only moderate pain. It is now 8 hours later and I still have only a little pain. So thankful for this medication."

Toradol IV/IM (ketorolac): "I have hemiplegic migraines and end up at the hospital about once a month. Each time, with the exception of twice (given morphine - allergic reactions occurred), I was given a toradol cocktail through IV in the ER. After a few minutes, the pain began to subside and I went to sleep. I would recommend this if one is able to take it."

Toradol (ketorolac): "II have sciatica in both legs and lower back pain. I take toradol with fentanyl patches and morphine and the results are very good. Had back surgery 27 yrs ago...did NOT WORK. I have a terrible time, every day... Too bad I can't use toradol every day! If I could I would. 20 m.g and I'm in a good mood for 4 hrs."

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.."
