When my migraines are really bad and nothing else works I will get a shot of toradol and phenegren (sp?). It helps tremendously. But I only get it as,a last resort since toradol can cause rebound headaches
I have gotten the injections and they helped a lot. I get them without Phenergan though. I have to drive 30 minutes to get to my doctor and Phenergan would prevent driving home. Recently, I started the Sprix Toradol spray. A lot more convenient. You have to remember to lean forward when doing it or it'll burn like fire
I get a lot of neck stiffness and back pain with my migraines and I recently aggravated a nerve in my neck so my neck and back of my head was numb and really painful and I had a shooting pain on the right side going all the way down to my hand.
It’s slowly been getting better and now it’s just really sore and I have a dull stabbing pain in my neck
I just got a Toradol shot Friday. Yes I do believe they help. I used to get them a couple of times a month. My doctor knows I don't like to get them very often. This was the first time I've had in about 2 or 3 months. But I have had a 3-2 for week-long migraine so I finally gave in and went to the doctor. I think it was an overabundance of stress due to having to make the decision to put down my precious dog who had cancer. It was just more than I could deal with.
How long do the shots last for?
Well for me it's not a matter of how long it lasts. It's a matter of getting rid of the migraine . I go in to Kaiser to get a Toradol shot when I can't get rid of a migraine on my own at home. The Toradol shot is able to knock it out and make the migraine go away. All together. Sometimes, like Friday, I'll get two or three shots one is a Toradol accompanied with Compazine and a Benadryl shot. But if you get that three combination you need to have somebody drive you there to drive you home and you will be knocked out for hours. My daughter was with me and since I had been fighting this for several weeks I went for the 3 combo came home and slept for about 12 hours I'm feeling great right now

I tried the shots almost a year ago. and the first one helped but then after that they didnt.
I was getting them about once a month. I got 60mg, it helped take the edge off. I have a lot of inflammation and full-body pain. The Toradol was more helpful for that than the migraine, but when your in severe pain, any reduction helps.
(I’m not currently using it because I’m pregnant.)
Tornado Lisa like drinking a glass of water for me. It does nothing. And I’ve had many shots and the nasal spray. No more!
Torodol is awsome
So my doctor put me on topimax and a preventative and my rescue meds are imatrix (I think that’s how you spell it) and torodol nasal spray (at my request)
I got the torodol shot 30 mins ago and I already feel relief everywhere
The torodol shot works well for me. My doctor prescribed the shots for me so I know do my own.
Really? I’ll have to ask if I can get them like that. I always have to go in. I would rather do it myself.
Walgreens said the manufacturer stopped making the nasal spray
The biggest problem I have is that where I live I’m only allowed to get 5 shots at a time even though he prescribed more. That means I’m going back all the time. And my copay is 65 every time.
Never worked for me
Toradol has been THE magic answer to pain for me in the past. Back in the 90's, you could get it prescribed as an alternative to narcotics. Toradol doesn't bind to the opioid receptors like Tramadol does either = no withdrawal.
