Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I received this injection last night at VA hospital in Philadelphia. I just couldn't deal with peripheral neuropathy pain anymore. I hate narcotic medicine. So this was a great alternative it took a lot of pain away, I still feel light tingles but nowhere near what is was feeling prior. I have MRI done to see where my nerve is trapped. I hope it's something I can resolve permanately, My girlfriend ask to describe pain, I told her basically it's a never ending root canal, and she immediately felt horrible for me. I urge people who have this don't delay treatment it jus gets unbearable, but this shot does work decently. However, it won't last more than couple days so make sure u get scripts for meds needed until u get MRI done."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "Get this injected when I have a particularly bad migraine and my hydrocodone and imitrex are not helping. Works like a charm every time. Other meds haven't helped when they get this bad. Plus it's cheap which helps when having to go to a clinic/er."

For Pain: "Toradell does absolutely nothing for my severe migraines. Tried it on 3 occasions. It worked very well for my kidney stone pain for a couple of hours. After that, the pain returned and they pushed morpine for total relief. Was sent home with oxycodone. Only took one that night and I'm feeling much better! I can see how it works differently for different people."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I had come down with a very bad sinus infection that caused me to have a migraine like headache. It was extremely unbearable. So I had my spouse take me to the emergency room and the doctor gave me a shot in the rear and within seconds I felt immense relief. The next day the headache came back and after eight hours of dealing with it, I went back to the ER and got another shot. It was fabulous and it allowed me the ability to keep down my antibiotic so I could kick the sinus infection. I don't know why they don't make an injection pen for Migraine sufferers to keep around. Worked way faster than Imitrex ever did for me in the past."

For Pain: "I had excruciating lower back pain along with sciatica. Had shot I hip about 4 hrs ago. Pain is almost gone. I still have a little sciatica, but that takes a few days to heal . Dr also prescribed Vicodin but don't think I will need it tonight. I could barely walk before the dr visit. Now I am much better. No drug works for everyone, but it's worth a try. Hope you all feel better!"

For Pain: "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) 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 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) 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."

Toradol (ketorolac) 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: "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) for Pain: "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) 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!"

Toradol (ketorolac) 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'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) 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!"

Toradol (ketorolac) 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."

Toradol IV/IM (ketorolac) for Pain: "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) 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."
