Reviews for Ketorolac

JCDS · Taken for less than 1 month October 21, 2016

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!”

“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): “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.”

“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): “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): “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.”

Toradol IV/IM (ketorolac): “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): “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!”
