I am 60 years lady. I got severe toothache since last 4 days. I consulted dentist. The medicine he suggested is not helpful to me. Kindly suggest any home remedy or powerful antibiotic / painkiller that keeps away my toothache immediately and for better sleep. I am now out of station. I will take further treatment after sometime.

You have to consult a Dr. to know what's your problem by saying tooth ache only pain killers can b suggested which r harmful if taken in controled may b your busy but if you love your self better go to a dentist local application of pain out may help you temporarily.
Kindly get an X-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a cap /crown. Mam kindly visit a dentist and get yourself examined and get the required medication as without having a look it's difficult to suggest any medication. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.
Mam first of all eating medicine for any dental problem is not the solution. I mean even if you eat also its just the temporary treatment to your disease you need to start your dental treatment too. Your pain will only start subside when you start your dental treatment + you r eating medicine. U were asking about medicine then mam dentist who have already written your medicine definitely he must b proper othentic person as you hv not mentioned your prescribed medication also. He must hv written you correct but pain will subside only when you wl get your treatment start too along with medication. If you need help further regarding this tell me.
Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
