Dental Abscess Tooth

So I am getting a root canal done on Wednesday, I went and got antibiotics for the abscess I have in my mouth. There was absolutely nothing wrong with my tooth but the abscess forming underneath it. But my face is swollen up so bad and I'm in much pain and it's not receding or draining on its own. I have not slept since 3am this morning because of the pain. Earlier it did kind of go down but now it's inflamed again. I've been taking ibuprofen as well as Tylenol 3. Is there any home remedies to getting the abscess to drain?! Ice packs are not helping with the swelling either. I'm in so much pain and don't know what to do.
