Has anyone used self injecting Torodal or its generic Ketorolac

Post  lisa59 on Wed Jun 01, 2016 6:11 pm

I have the self injection of Imitrex and they don't work on me. I was wondering if someone has tried the Torodal, and inject themselves at home.
Thank you

i know there are people who have torodol to inject at home, but my MD won't let me have it. Also, i think their's is the draw up and you actuallyhave to give yourself the shot (not an auto injector like immitrex has)

I have. It came in a vial with syringes. I never found it too helpful. Plenty of folks do though. Note that Torodal is something that should be severely limited, as its rough on the system; my doctor limited me to one injection a week. They also make pills, but apparently they are pretty worthless.

I actually found oral Diclofenac way more helpful than injectable Torodal for awhile (and my doctor was ok with me taking that once or twice a day). My current miracle med is Ketamine (I've tried nasal and oral).

Few doctors seem open to prescribing patients injectable meds, sadly enough. I think all migraine/headache patients who have had times their med didn't work / wanted to go to the ER due to severe pain should have a rescue med, something different & stronger, such as an injectable. I guess doctors see injectable meds as riskier?

Some don't even know how to prescribe them. They also have to consider patient education/instruction. When I've asked about them, telling the doctor I had previous injectable med experience seemed to help sway their opinion. I seem to remember specifically requesting the Torodal. Best wishes.

I've also tried the self injection of Imitrex; the side effects were severe as compared to the pill which gives me almost no side effects. I had injected Toradol once at the urgent care and it did not help my migraine. They then gave me a narcotic injection which reduced the pain slightly.

The pills were given to me for the few days following an injection, to keep me from coming back 2 days later with another migraine. They'll help extend the help the shots for me, but if I don't use them all, I don't find taking one at a later point to be any better than aleve
