For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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!"

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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!"

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Postoperative Pain "Post root canal. Taken orally 10mg tabs. Minor relief of pain but severe stomach cramps. Stopped taking them and took advil liquid gels/ extra strength tylemol combo which proved way more effective. Took another Toradol a few days later with same results. Stomach cramps and minor pain relief."

For Pain "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.."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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!!"

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 "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."

"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!"

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."

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."
