Toradol (ketorolac): “I have been in total agony with a pain that felt like I was going to be giving birth to an elephant, plus pains in each side of the abdomen and pain coming out in my lower back and rib pain. The pain made my moods and emotions full of anger, sobbing, outbursts, I felt non-human. Just no control of myself. I tried Dilaudid, and Tylenol 3's nothing worked and while in emergency I was treated with several drugs, the pain remained. Finally Dilaudid with a shot of Toradol and it took the pain, what a relief. I felt human again, I felt focused and I could see life and what was real. ”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I had a severe toothache that hurt so bad I couldn't even think. Over the years I have had morphine, Lortab, Tylox, you name it; nothing I tried completely killed the pain. Toradol did.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I get shots of this when I have a migraine. The shot hurts, but once the medicine kicks in, you feel a lot better. You probably wouldn't want to drive on it though.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “As a Medic in the US Army, I see a lot of injuries. I give Toradol IM for most severe acute pain. Toradol is one of the best because of it's versatility; dosage, administration techniques, etc. Plus, it's an NSAID, not a narcotic, so there's a lower probability of addiction!”

Toradol (ketorolac): “Had full kidney stone blockage in ureter. The pain was so severe that neither Morphine or Dilaudid could handle it. When they added Toradol to the Dilaudid it knocked the pain out almost completely. I was told it only works in about 50% of the population. I was very glad that I'm in that 50%.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I could not move my neck. Within 3 minutes I had full range of motion. It did not take all the pain away but reduce it by about 50%, and allowed me to have movement.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I was given Toradol for tendonitis in my achilles tendon (very painful). It really helped with the pain and made the inflammation go down, however it made me nauseated. I had to quit taking it and move to a narcotic pain killer that did not work on the inflammation.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I had what was found to be an upper back inflammation, with a great deal of pain. It was first thought that I was having a heart attack or an embolism. As morphine-related medicines make me sick (nausea and headache), they gave me Toradol injections while I was in the hospital (for 24 hours) and it knocked the pain better than anything I had taken up to that point. I still had a little pain but it was tolerable, and this medicine didn't make me sick. I would recommend it especially for those who can't take narcotic pain relievers. Don't know about the oral dose as I didn't get that, just injections through an IV.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I was given Toradol via IV in the ER to relieve pain from kidney stone attack and it worked wonders for me! It made the pain go away completely within about 20 minutes and didn't make me feel doped up or sick to my stomach. I also didn't experience any side effects from it.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I had excruciating pain in my left arm. They gave me a shot of morphine which did not relieve it at all. They then decided to give me Toradol through an IV site. It was the only thing that took the pain away. It's excellent.”

“Had a morphine pump after total abdominal hysterectomy with tumors removed as well. After about 6 hours on the morphine, I was nauseated. Took Toradol injections every six hours from then on and was pain free. Much better drug without all of the side efects. I am also a registered nurse and have seen this in my patients as well.”
