Will Drano unclog sewer line?

Drano uses caustic or oxidizing chemicals (like lye) to dissolve whatever is clogging a drain. The chemical reaction between the clog and Drano creates heat. Now, Drano does not clear a clog instantly. It's going to sit in the toilet (or farther down the pipes, depending where the clog is) until the clog dissolves.

What can I use to unclog my toilet?

Pour 1 cup baking soda and 2 cups vinegar into the toilet.
If you don't have baking soda and vinegar on hand, try adding a few squirts of dish soap to the toilet bowl. The soap may help to loosen the clog. This method isn't likely to work for clogs caused by a hard obstruction, such as a toy.
