Full Question:

Can Stadol Nasal Spray be injected IM? It burns my nose and throat. William.


Dear William;

Did you see our reply to your previous question? If not, please see _Can you inject Migraine abortive nasal spray? _ The same answer applies here.

Never inject any medication unless it is specifically formulated for and prescribed for injection. Stadol _IS _ also made for injections, but it is a different formula than the nasal spray.

To clarify from your previous question, Stadol is NOT a Migraine abortive. It is an opioid pain reliever. This article should be helpful in clarifying the difference --** Preventive, Abortive, and Rescue Medications - What's the Difference?**

Good luck,
John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
