If this is a true allergy, opposed to an adverse effect, ie- hives, swelling etc,  Here are a list of antibioitic you should not take-
Any cephalosporin - Keflex, rocephin, ceclor, omnicef, are some of the common examples. 
Any penicillin - Amocicillin, Augmentin, PennVK etc

If its simply an adverse reaction, such as belly pain, diarrhea, or other similar adverse reaction, there are no restrictions.
