Anonymous March 16, 2016

“I had a severe concussion and although it did take away some of the pain, it only made the head aches manageable.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “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.”

“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): “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): “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): “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 IM (ketorolac): “Had severe abdominal pain, Doc gave me shot of toradol and said I needed to get to motel because I would be going to sleep. Only reduced pain 50% and suffered for 4 more hours and then taking hydrocodone to finally get to sleep”

Toradol (ketorolac): “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.”

Toradol IM (ketorolac): “Kidney stones. Size of marble in each kidney. ER. ER nurse with compassion and intelligence as I writhed in agaony, injected me in my bottomside. Instant relief. Exhaled and could taste the keytone of the torodol. Passed out. Separate occasion. Wish for death migraine. Usually 800 mg ibuprofin and 2 cups of fresh coffee sometimes with pseudoephedrine 60 mg and dark quiet and proper pillow and don't move for 2 hours, will win it for me but was on day 3, out of imitrex too. Went to ER. Dr. with experience, shot to bottomside, lights out. Took bout an hour for complete relief. But began to ease pain right away. I've tried all the dopiates, and the result is no pain relief, nausea or unco science.”

“Had the most horrible abscessed tooth pain. Never ever felt such pain in my life. Have had some stomach issues with advil and surprisingly not with the Toradol. It takes a while to kick in, maybe half an hour but definitely did the job. Better than T3 for sure and it didn't leave me drowsy, if anything it gave me energy and I could concentrate more. Too bad than it's not recommended to be used for more than 5 days”

Toradol IV/IM (ketorolac): “I got Toradol IV for pain due to kidney stones and infection. It didn't help the pain very much, and it burned. After they took the IV out, I sprayed blood all over the ER. I bled from the injection site for many hours. Never again.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “I took one 10 mg at the onset of migraine, it did nothing. I took a second 10 mg after an hour and still no relief. I felt no relief at all, not even slight.”

“I have had chronic migraines for 15 years, they became daily about 10 years ago. None of the triptans (imitrex, maxalt, etc.) Work for me, nor do a lot of others. I was prescribed stadol, which is highly addictive and has a fast tolerance rate, and after that I did not believe tordol could work, I relied solely on narcotics, despite rebounds. I would be given tordol in the urgent care, and it didn't work (as I believed it wouldn't!) After the doctors stopped giving me stadol and a couple years later I tried tordol... only this time I told myself it would work... it has been my miracle drug ever since. It isn't easy to do deep IM on myself, and sometimes it really hurts, but I have only had to go to the ER once in the past 18 months.”

“I had such a severe toothache and nothing including Percocet took it away I went to the ER after crying uncontrollably and was given Toradol IM. My pain went away within 5 minutes. Not going to lie, the shot hurt but it was worth it”

Toradol (ketorolac): “Was on day 5 of a left sided migraine, after been given tramadol which only made me faint every time I stood up was taken to emergency room. Given Toradol through injection only slightly touched the excruciating pain in my head. Was given morphine which proved more successful. However the next day I am back to a full blown headache with pins and needles down face. Zilch results ehh..”

“Neck and upper back pain. Progressed to numbness in left pinky and ring finger. Then odd sensation painful but agitating pulses in medial arm. Pain level 7 (constants edge of tears). History of neck pain at c5/6. So I tried to treat at home with rest, naproxen, flexerol, and traction. Pain and symptoms got worse. Went to ER as I was dropping things in the kitchen. Don't like narcotics. Given toradol injection. WOW! Quick relief went from 7 to 2. Stiffness in neck reduced and pain in shoulder. Still numb in fingers but media arm better. Gave oral steroids and oral toradol. Pain is increasing again, but managed.”

“Kidney Stone & Infection as a result... Asked for it specifically after the shot was effective Works well for me in pill form too Seems to help with swelling & inflammation too I am pleased with it. I'd rather be taking it than a narcotic drug too.”

Toradol (ketorolac): “Went to ER with severe flank pain, was given Toradol via my IV and it worked miracles -- pain went from an 8 to a 2 in about 15 minutes. Found out I had a couple kidney stones and was prescribed 10 mg tablets to take for several days. They barely worked at all, had to go back a couple days later with my pain just as bad and be prescribed something else. So, Toradol is GREAT when administered through an IV, not so good in pill form.”

Worst Pain of my life · Taken for less than 1 month September 6, 2015

Toradol (ketorolac): “It is the ONLY reason I am able to sit at this computer and type right now. 2 weeks ago I got a very very bad virus, was dehydrated & had my 1st migraine at 32 years old. I can't even begin to tell you the pain I have felt over the past 2 weeks with it not letting up AT ALL. I have had blood work, spinal tap, ct scan, mri, numerous pain meds while I was in the hospital 3 different times over the past 2 weeks. My doctor's office gave me a shot of this 4 days ago and it was the ONLY relief I had felt. My doctor gave me the oral form this past Friday and my headache is starting to break. This may not work for everyone, but for me it has literally been a miracle! I wish I could take it more than 5 days, but hopefully my migraine will be gone!!”

Toradol (ketorolac): “From reading these I can see everyone is different. For me, on an IV drip, it completely eliminated the pain, gone. Taking pills after the Torodol wore off did nothing. Eventually threw them all up and went back to the ER.”
