Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: Got injection at ER for migraine. Worked fast and took the edge off the pain. The worst part was the actual shot, intense pressure and burning for about 15 mins due to it being injected into muscle. I'll probably be sore for a few days.. otherwise effective, fast acting medicine.
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: I have severe osteoarthritis in both knees, anti-inflammatories work a little. I was in so much pain I went to ER. They gave me a shot of Tordol and it was a miracle. Only downfall was initial burning from shot, but well worth the relief.
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: I am 30 years old. I had a multiple composite spinal injuries 15 years ago. The aches and pains unbearable. I started taking anti-inflammatories about 2 years ago. I started getting injections every month of Toradol and "Depo" something. I am almost off all pain meds I mean I still have bad days but I can function again.
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: Toradol has literally been a lifesaver! I have Cervical Dystonia, which gives me really bad migraines. Toradol usually will take my entire migraine away, and if it doesn't, it makes it manageable.It doesn't make me sick to my stomach, and it doesn't make me too drowsy, I'm able to drive home afterwards. The only bad thing about it is that I usually have pain around the injection site that lasts for a long while, but it hardly compares to the pain of the headache I had before it!
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: I was in a vehicle accident and had a Toradol injection for pain in my back muscles. I experienced the severe side effects of blurred vision, nausea, and dizziness (I felt like at any moment I would pass out) about 2 hours after the injection. My hips also hurt for about 8 hours after the injection. My back pain has lessened, so the medication worked, but it is now on my list of allergies.
Review by Gave me migraines (taken for less than 1 month):
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: I took three doses in a row and started getting migraine vision then the horrible headaches, but that wasn't all. I kept getting the vision coming and going for days until every trace of that medicine was out of my system. My daughter later told me that was the same medicine that she was given and it gave her terrible headaches too. That will be on my list of allergies from now on.
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: The injection hurt, was a very big sting and burning sensation, I was hoping for relief sooner and longer but it did neither. I got the shot about 4 pm, was able to move my arm without pain about 5 pm and was back to hurting before 6 pm.
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: I had gotten addicted to Lortab and ask my doctor to take me off it because I just hated not being in control of a medicine. I have Fibromyalgia, so I needed something that would help. After different meds, that did not work, he gave me a shot of Toradol, I was amazed when it took effect! For the first time in a long time my whole body felt pain free. You would think miracle medicine, right? Well, it was however, the side effects of constipation and upset stomach, bloating, heartburn, not urinating enough, the medicine scared me (he also gave me the Toradol pills). I have an appoinment with my doctor tomorrow and I hate that I will have to be taken off this med. If you have great relief with no side effects, it is great!
Toradol (ketorolac) for Postoperative Pain: I have a long history of narcotic drug dependency, mainly heroin use. I went into the ER with an insect bite which was infected because I had tried to drain it myself. Don't Do That! I was given IV Toradol during my 5 day stay in the hospital. My 2nd day there I had to have surgery. Post op I took only Toradol, it did great for managing my pain. I chose not to go the narcotic route due to my drug abuse history. Had it not been for this medication, I could have very well been on the road to relapse following my surgery. I do have to mention that IV Toradol does wonders for me but when I had a prescription for the pills, they gave me awful nightmares and upset stomach along with some other unwanted side effects.
Review by Anonymous (taken for less than 1 month):
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: I received an injection of this medicine because of a debilitating migraine which lasted for more than two weeks.
When this was injected I almost immediately started to feel CRAZY.
I wanted to leave the hospital immediately, even though my migraine was worse- not better. I actually WALKED home (hospital was nearby) but my right leg went numb & I literally dragged it behind me all the way home.
This was followed by EXTREME anxiety, confusion and a full week of insomnia which I had to be treated for.
Obviously, I had one of those "rare" reactions. However, a close friend later had a similar reaction to this medication and had to be put it a straight jacket following administration.
So, these reactions, while rare, can be extreme.

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: The pain I had was the most severe pain you could imagine- Back pain and Radicular nerve pain going down the outside and back of the leg and I couldn't walk unless I had crutches but a combination of Lortab and the injection of Toradol actually worked. I had been in pain for over 2 weeks and after numerous visits to the local Mega Orthopedic clinic I ended up back to my regular doctor and he gave me the injection. I have had the pill form before with no results but the injection works great!
Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: I was given Toradal (iv form) in the hospital. I was in agony after experiencing severe complications (nerve damage, bleeding, infection) from two back to back knee surgeries. Morphine couldn't touch the pain. Toradal was my miracle.
Toradol (ketorolac) for Postoperative Pain: I had a C-section and the first day they gave me Toradol injections. I have to say, it definitely helped the pain for me and I did not have any side effects. I was concerned about it going through breast milk while I was receiving it but I was told by the nurses not to worry. I would definitely use it again and recommend it if someone inquired about it.
