Hi.. these are very essential medicines to help wound healing and treat infection following surgical extraction. Amoxicillin and metrogyl are antibiotics - they are given prevent possible infection. Pain killer - to bring down pain. Pan 40- to control acidity created by painkillers. Trypsin-chymotrypsin - to reduce swelling. These all are needed for a week.
This all have necessary
