Reviews for Ketorolac to treat Pain

Sort by:

Toradol (ketorolac): "I was suffering from a somewhat severe case of costochondritis. Felt like a heart attack sometimes. Went to the emergency room and an IV injection of toradol was administered to me. Felt a buzz coming on. More pronounced than the saline solution injected into me. Other than that the pain was mostly gone within a few hours after I got discharged."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I have a long history with kidney stones and have been on every pain killer there is. Toradol is the only medicine that takes the pain away!"

Toradol (ketorolac): "I have been suffering from Tonsillitis for 5 days, my tonsils were extremely swollen and full of pus. I could not swallow without excruciating pain. I went to my primary care doctor and got a dose of Toradol. Along w/ IV fluids, antibiotics and steroids. Within 45 mins my throat was about 60% less painful. By the end of the day I could swallow completely without any pain. I'm sure both the IV and Toradol played parts in this, but I believe the Toradol was the extra punch I needed."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I have about 8-10 migraines a month that leave me hugging the toilet, and/or hiding in the dark closet with a pile of blankets. Today was the first time they tried anything other than Excedrin Migraine. Toradol! A shot :-\...Oh my, for the first time since 2008 I don't have pain in my back and neck. She said it would not make me tired but I just spent a nice 4 hr nap in zero pain. Yes, the injection had a mild heat like pain for a few minutes. But to feel like this is pretty much awesome!"

Toradol (ketorolac): "I went to Urgent Care for what turned out to be a kidney stone. I was in severe pain and they finally (after begging) gave me Toradol in my IV. It took quite awhile to just take the edge off. It lasted about 3 hours. When I left, they gave me another pain killer that nicely did the trick!"

Toradol (ketorolac): "I suffer from chronic migraines and every dr wants to give toradol shots to stop them. Toradol is not FDA approved as a treatment for migraines. It does not work."

Toradol (ketorolac): "Was given an im injection in the buttocks for migraines and it was completely ineffective. The pain that the injection caused was infuriating considering there was absolutely no relief of the headache."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I was in the middle of passing a kidney stone. I was admitted to the ER with severe pain in right side, tremors, cold sweats, nausea, vomiting, feeling of full bladder and need to urinate but inability to urinate. I was given IV toradol and the pain subsided within a minute. I was even able to get some shut eye on and off for maybe an hour. Of the IV drugs I have received, this one had me the most clear headed, functional, aware. It staved off the pain for about 3-4 hours, after which I asked for another injection before being released from the ER, as the pain was returning with the nausea. NOTE: I have been having severe (2 or 3 at rest, 7-9 in wrong position) right leg pain for a few months. Toradol ineffective. Nerve pain?"

Toradol (ketorolac): "Have been suffering with a severe throats infection for 3 nights now. Been on antibiotics, aspirin and ibuprofen. Saw a Dr today and was given this injection of Tiraspol. Have been pain free for hours and able to finally eat something. I don't typically take any drugs but this one I am glad I did!!"

"I was prescribed this med for kidney stone pain and it worked great. Within 30 minutes of taking it I had near total relief after 12 hours of excruciating pain. It actually worked more than the IV pain medication I was given in-hospital. So far no unpleasant side effects either, though I took it with a good meal as suggested."

Toradol (ketorolac): "After ending up in the ER with the worst migraine I've ever had, the doctor gave me 3 different meds, all through an IV. None of them made a difference. He then gave me Toradol. It took the edge off right away, and after about 10 minutes my migraine was gone. I have taken it ever since. It's the only thing I have found that helps. I wish it worked for everyone as well as it works for me."

Toradol (ketorolac): "I suffer from chronic migraines. More than 15 days a month of constant pain where more than 4 days are full on migraines. .Toradol is one of the drugs in a cocktail I take through IV all at once. Combined with the other drugs it is amazing..alone Toradol, even if I wait the 1 hour, has not successfully reduced my migraines."

Toradol (ketorolac): "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): "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."

"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): "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."

"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!"
