In brief: No

It is used sometimes off label to treat cluster headaches or migraine headaches but not for tooth aches. It is mainly used to treat seasonal allergies.

In brief: Not for pain

Periactin (cyproheptadine hydrochloride) is not used to relieve pain.
It is an antihistamine used to control itching, hives, hay fever and other allergic reactions. Could you be thinking about paracetamol? That's another name for acetaminophen.
