Good option for what Candy? Are you asking for a good option for pain control? If you are, as someone who has not only treated patients passing kidney stones (as a medical provider), I have passed three kidney stones myself; I personally have both seen and experienced Toradol work very, very well for kidney stone pain. In fact better than narcotics. The one downside is that while IV Toradol works great, the pill form is not nearly as good. I have also been told by my personal Suboxone physician that IV Fentanyl works the best on patients taking Suboxone. I have no idea if he is correct about this or not. I can just tell you that if I ever pass another kidney stone, I'll ask for IV Toradol first. If that doesn't work, or for other types of pain I may have, I'd ask them to give me IV Fentanyl and see how well it actually does work in the face of Suboxone.

Beyond all of that, all of us here on Suboxone are at the same risk - that being we are sitting ducks for emergency pain control for at least about 48 hours if not more like 72. While narcotics have pretty much, hands down, been proved to be the most effective class of pain medication, we Suboxone patients will be forced to see what non-narcotic medications work the best.

If that's not what you are asking about, you'll have to rephrase the question.
