iv'e had Asthma for over 17 years, im allergic to Aspirin, my primary doctor of 9 years gave me a shot of Toradol injection injection on 12/1/09 i had a severe Asthma attack which i almost died i was in ICU for 3 days im more than sure the Toradol injection caused it.....can you tell me do a asthamtic patient suppose to take Toradol if they is allergic to aspirin?
If you have an allergist, you can talk to them about desensitizing (immunotherapy) to NSAIDs. I also have attacks with NSAIDs. However, with the new warnings about Tylenol, my allergist is more concerned about that and is planning on treating the NSAID allergywith immunotherapy. Personally I am not that concerned about Tylenol. I have taken it for years without any problems, but this is one of those things that can sneek up on you if you aren't careful. I don't want to be unable to take all pain relievers.
I had a terrible experience with Toradol as well. I didn't end up in the hospital, but I did feel close to death for about 1-2 days after taking it. Funny thing about it is I do not have any allergy to aspirin/NSAIDS. I do have a history of Asthma though.
I would recommend getting a MED-ALERT bracelet or necklace so others are aware of your allergies and medications you cannot take in case you are not able to speak for yourself.
I think your physician could have been more prudent.
