Hi all,

I started this 2 weeks ago... and a couple people asked for an update on how it works.

Basically, it "works" the same as IV Toradol. The medication itself has taken the edge off of a couple of headaches... but that's about it.

However, the delivery system is TERRIBLE. It's a nasal spray - but let me tell you what it's really like. Imagine putting an open flame up your nose and then feeling the flame go up and to the back of your throat.

I'm not a wimp by any means, lol (I've given birth x8 kids and had meningitis 2x). The point is, though, I would rather go to the ER... sit for a few hours... and get an IV than use this on a regular basis.

I did give it a good try... I tried it about 6 to 7 times.

I spent an hour looking it up the other night online... and, apparently, the product is not selling well due to the very reason I described.

Anyway, just wanted to share my experiences.... I wonder what my PM's reaction will be to this... she went on and on about how great it is.

Glad you posted. I have used Stadol nose spray until I had a reaction to it.

          WOW!...I could not handle that Tina! ...and I understand your concern of what your PM has to say. So far from what you have described...she has taken a fork in the road and gone off the beaten path for a

Scenic tour. I hope she will be reasonable as to your increased pain, and get you back on track soon.
