    My first use was almost my last ! The burning sensation, taste, tearing were intolerable. On a whim, I watched the video on how to use the meds on the internet. This is not to be inhaled !!!!! I sprayed it to the side of my nose, and had almost no side effect at all ! I am so happy that I watched that video. The medicine has worked well, and now that I know how to use it, I am a fan. This is new, ... Show Full Comment

    I read ALL of the reviews to see what I was getting into. I absolutely HATE nasal sprays. I would rather have a suppository (sp?) than a nasal spray. I was scared to death. I agree that it stings like crazy in the nose, throat & if you gag then the taste in your mouth is like sucking on a sweaty sock BUT the medication DID work. I have been suffering with migraines for a long time & have ... Show Full Comment

    I have had Toradol/ketarolac for about a year in the intermusculal injection form. This form is much more effective but is no longer available at any pharmacy. This nasal spray is not as effective as the injectable form and is far too uncomfortable. The burning and sinus discharge after use is ridiculous.

    I was given this medication for chronic sinitus. It burned my nose so bad my eyes poured with tears and it made my throat was raw and burned as bad as my nose was burning. I tried it again thinking it would be better but it was worse. It did help my pain but it was not worth the burning. I will never use this medication again!!!!!!

    I tried to spray it my on the inner and outer side of my nostril and still had a lot of burning, but it only lasted for a minute. It relieves my headache pain quickly whereas Vicodin works slowly. I am impressed. It causes me to salivate for about a minute, which I could not find in the side effects.
