Reviews for Toradol IV / IM

kidneystonepaingone March 30, 2016

“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.”

“I suffer from severe nerve and back pain. When my gabapentin and norcos can't cut it I go to the ER and get a shot of toradol. I will have electric shooting pains that go down my leg and out my foot every few minutes. 60 mg of Toradol will have me pain-free within an hour. I have gone several times so far. One flare-up was so bad that the shot only stopped it for 24 hrs and I had to go back the next day and get another. Then I was good for a few months till the next bad flare up”

“I have severe migraines. Despite neurology shots in my head, neck and shoulders I still get migraines. I usually have sumatriptan pills to help at the start of one. But when caffeine and these don’t work, I take a ketoralac/tramadol shot IM at home. These help avoid ER visits and hospitalization. It takes about 15 minutes for it to really kick in, but the effect is almost immediate...as if the migraine never happened. When I did go to the ER, tramadol IV instantly removed any pain in my eyes, head and neck. I’ve had no side effects other than about 30 minutes of tenderness where I received the shot (upper arm). This works for some and not others. Mine is only as needed for severe 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.”

“Was in ER for severe right side abdominal pain that radiated to my back on lower right side also. Scans and blood tests were normal. Results did show ovarian cysts. Was given Toradol via IV and pain has been gone for almost 24 hours. I feel normal again”

Mixed Headache disorder February 24, 2013

“For several years I ended up in the ER for severe migraine treatments. In the beginning I was always treated with a narcotic and anti nausea. After taking narcotic and triptan at home failed, usually vomiting uncontrollably. Now I take oxycodone daily. When it fails I go to the ER and now, I get Torodol. It works better than any narcotic. Very fast relief. I rarely get it i.v because now I go before I vomit. The shot in the butt does not bother me and fastest way to get rid of the pain. If I am already vomiting I still take the shot in the butt and the I.V with anti nausea separately. I.V is too slow for pain relief. Never had side effects. But I guess I am getting a mix between the narcotic at home and the shot. Never took it alone.”

“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 makes me feel pretty strange and out of it for a few days. It works for post-procedure pain, but I honestly don't know if it's any more effective than just taking ibuprofen. Regardless, I'd rather deal with a headache after my procedure than feel weird and in pain for a few days.”

“Let me see. Toradol? It's a joke. 56 surgeries, body parts that are not mine, shot, stabbed and blown up. 30 years USMC, oh, and I am now told I have CRPS. McGill Pain Scale is a 1, a ONE for CRPS. Due to all of the surgeries from trauma I have received far too much morphine. Can't tolerate any med but IM demerol for pain. Why this rubbish is even on the market amazes me. Perhaps it is to make the morons we, well some of us, call "doctor" feel even more important. Toradol is a waste of $$$ and time.”

“I had my first kidney stone (I didn't know a human could feel such pain, writhing on the floor, etc.). I got an IV dose of Toradol in the ambulance, and a Toradol pill in the ER. Neither had any effect on the pain. About two hours later, the stone passed on its own, and the pain vanished.”

“I went to the ER with horrible pain in my side and abdomen (turns out I have gallstones) I can not take narcotics because I was addicted to Morphine in the past and currently take Suboxone. So, I was willing to just deal with the pain rather than take anything for it. So, the doctor said he can give me Toradol. They put it in my IV and within a couple minutes it took the edge off my pain. It went from an 8 to about a 6 on the pain scale. I some how managed to fall asleep and when they woke me up to go to ultrasound a little later, I had ZERO pain. It is truly amazing. They gave me a prescription to bring home - 5 days worth, and so far no pain. Hope it works this good after surgery!”

“I just had an IV with Toradol along with Magnesium at an infusion center for very nasty/chronic migraine & posterior cervical pain. As in the past, I did not get NOT get very much relief. I got off OXYCod. 7.5 mg. because of my tolerance that one gets after longterm use. In pain almost every day ! Had cervical 4-level fusion on Jan 28. Wish I never did ! Imitrex only helps migraine not the cervical/occipital pain daily. Anyone know how I can get pain relief! Tried many 'scripts over last 10+ yrs. ”

“Had a kidney stone last night. In severe pain I went to a local ER. They gave me Toradol IV with absolutely zero pain relief. Later on Morphine did the trick.”
