Painkillet: You need to be seen clinically before you can be given a prescription for painkillers. Call the dentist you have an appointment with and see if they can see you sooner. They might give you a prescription for an antibiotic if they think it is appropriate.

Against the law...: you're already taking a mild painkiller. In order for you to receive a medication that requires a script, you need to be a patient of record. if you broke a tooth you might try to find something like "dent temp" to fill in or cover the hole. That might tide you over until you can be seen. Good luck and don't let that go too long.
