I have been allergic to penicillin since 1989.  I remember taking tetracycline 10 years before that in adolescence with no adverse effects.

I need to know if Tetracyline is part of the penicillin family.  I ask, because even though it's listed as a quinolone, in some sites it's associated with Ampicillin, which IS in the penicillin family.


Thanks for your help.
