    Allergic to penicillin: How do you tell if medicine has penicillin from its name as in amoxICILLIN or ampICILLIN?

    Is there penicillin in Alcephin, Cefalaxin, and Carbenicillin?

    Always ask a doctor and pharmacist before taking any kind of antibiotic.  Specifically tell your doctor that you are allergic to Penicillin so that they know.  I am not allergic, but my mother and sister developed a  penicillin allergy later in life, so my doctor naturally keeps me off of it as a precaution.  I rarely use an antibiotic but if I absolutely have to I always double check.  I'm not sure about others, but cephalexin I am pretty sure does not have penicillin in it.
