In residency, I had a patient who only wanted Toradol. We gave him Vicodin, tons of morphine, but he was obsessed with getting his toradol shot. For those of you who don't know, toradol is like a stronger form of motrin. I would love to give him as much toradol as he wants, but you can't give it for more than five days because it can cause bleeding.
My attending: "I've never seen a patient who wanted an NSAID that badly."
Me: "Yeah, I think he must think toradol is like demerol or something."
Attending: "Well, we can give him an oral NSAID. Which one do you want to give him?"
Me: "I don't know. Which one sounds the most fancy?"
Attending: "There's motrin, naprosyn, voltaren..."
Me: "Voltaren! Yes, that sounds good."
