First of all medications should not be taken on own. It can lead to antibiotic resistance. You have an infected tooth which is causing the pain. The tooth could be decayed which has resulted in the pain. The tooth should be root canal treated and capped or removed to solve your problem permanently.Consult a dentist at the earliest.

Firstly, we hope the friend who suggested this to you is a dentist and took a good look at your tooth before suggesting the medicines. This is because tooth pain can be due to various causes and only a dentist can determine the actual cause on examination. As you have the problem for 2 years now we assume you have not yet seen a dentist. Unfortunately most people do not realize the relation between good dental health and good overall health. Good teeth are very important for your overall health. We strongly recommend that you see a dentist ASAP for proper treatment that will resolve your pain permanently. Please do not heed the ?advice? of your friends unless they happen to be dentists.

I can introduce about a toothpaste which I have been using it.It really works well. I feel that you better try to use this product instead of using other toothpaste. This is not only a toothpaste alone which can be used for multiple purpose:

Ganozhi toothpaste alone contains ganoderma, the renowned super medicinal mushroom, to provide extra strength and a host of nutrition for the gums themselves. This all-natural product contains no artificial sweeteners, flavours or colouring.


Ganozhi Toothpaste contains Ganoderma, Peppermint Oil, Menthol and food gel (sodium alginate - seaweed). Great for oral health yet can be used topically as an everyday salve. Has been used on age spots, skin cancers, warts, aching joints and other skin conditions. No Fluoride, artificial colour, flavour, sweetening or preservative.
Ganoderma, also known as Ling-Zhi (Chinese) or Reishi (Japanese) and as “the King of Herbs” contains over 200 Nutraceutical and 50 Nutritional properties, the highest known in any one herb or plant. The cells in our body use these to help the natural balancing and maintenance required for good health.

Inside the Mouth
A healthy mouth has no ulcers, tooth decay, gum disease, loose teeth, or plaque. Only a small amount of Ganozhi paste is needed FOR GOOD MOUTH HYGIENE. (Unlike some commercial toothpastes, this DOES NOT CONTAIN Fluoride, Aluminium Dioxide, Aspartame (Saccharin), Phenylalanine or Potassium Nitrate.) IT CONTAINS: Ganoderma, vegetable gel, menthol, peppermint oil and water.

May be used directly from the tube as a paste on any skin condition: Apply twice daily or as required until you get results.

Ganoderma Toothpase may be used for Pain Relief on: Muscles, Throat, Chest etc. Simply apply a warm damp cloth to any area in pain (to open up the pores) and then apply a small amount of paste.

Ganoderma Toothpase may also be used Insect bites, chafes, burns, sunburn, cuts, mouth ulcers, scratches and most skin conditions. Some people may have temporary reddening effect in some areas (eg: facial).


If dental care is just not affordable, or you're dental-phobic, it's no excuse not to take the first easy step, and switch right now to Ganozhi toothpaste. And being a DXN product, you know it's quality assured and TGA approved.

I have been distributing DXN products in UK and worldwide by becoming a member of the DXN company (Member ID: 818006903).If you are interested to buy this product, Please let me know of your location. Then I can forward more detail about how to buy locally.

Yours Sincerely

Hi, please consult a good dentist because the cause of pain has to be determined and proper treatment has to be started. Pain killers and antibiotics can give you temporary relief but sometimes it becomes necessary to take immediate dental treatment to prevent the condition from worsening. You can take Tab Aceclo Plus and Tab Cifran 500 mg for temporary relief. Take care!

Hello -

Wife is 65 years old and suffers from extreme constipation. She receives excellent medical care, UNC & Duke graduates, but neither her primary physician or her plethora of specialists seem to be able to offer practical suggestions.

Situation resulted from surgery in 2001 four “flat back” syndrome secondary to scoliosis. Nerve damage occurred during surgery with many negative outcomes, such as, chronic pain, bladder and bowel dysfunction, some paralysis in right leg.

She manages well, in spite of, these difficulties and prior to surgery was high functioning in very responsible position.

She takes heavy narcotics for pain which, of course, contributes to her problem. Also, she takes Miralax and copious fluids.

Bowel movements are unpredictable and can take hours to complete. This part of her disability severely constricts her quality of life.

Are there any suggestions, short of a colostomy, which might alleviate her symptoms of constipation, as well as, relieving the constipation itself.

I understand this is a complicated medical situation, but I am interested only in the bowel management issues.

Any suggestions? Any recommendations? Any solutions?

Thanks very much for your time and attention to this problem.
