You can be insensitive ( when a higher dose than usual is needed for an effect) or an error could have occurred where there was no morphine in that drip! Fortunately, with the Toradol, all was well. ...Read more

I'm an addict foremost. Is there anything for pain in between nsaids and narcotics? Tordol works but why can it only be used sparingly?

Stomach: Toradol is just a strong nsaid; try tylenol (acetaminophen) with aleve, they work by differing mechanisms. If you have chronic pain problems you may benefit from a low dose of suboxone. Pain issues can be pert of a spectrum of mood problems and may be linked to addiction and mood. Also the snri class of antidepressant is good for pain. Cymbalta at 30 mg is not addictive and indicated for arthritis. Good luck. ...Read more

Took too many painkillers and i'm in trouble. Please help me?

Go to ER, call 911: Typing something to an online bulletin board is not what to do when you are in trouble. Calling 911 and/or going to an er or urgent care is what you do when you are in trouble. If you took too many at one time, it is already far too late for any help - you got better or you didn't. If you are taking too many chronically, you may need a detox. Talk to your doctor about a referral to a program fast. ...Read more
