"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."

"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.."

"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."

"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!!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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"

"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"

"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. They gave me a shot of Toradol and had me lay on the exam table for about 15 minutes. Worked great! After about an hour my migraine was completely gone. 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"

"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."

"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!"

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"I was given an injection of Toradol at an Emergency Walk-in Clinic this afternoon after spilling a large pot of boiling water all over my thighs. I was in agony when I went in; bordering on screaming in the waiting room. In so much pain they triaged me right away before even registering me. The injection was MIRACULOUS. This evening I have cooked dinner and cleaned up from it, with gauze bandages wrapped around my thighs and ace bandages holding them up. I am terrified of when the effects of the shot will wear off. I have Percocet at home but it's not as good as this injected Toradol was. This seems like the Miracle Painkiller: all the benefits of narcotics but none of the unpleasant side effects."
