It contains cephalexin. They could not have another medication in it without telling you. What you need to know is if you're allergic to penicillin, a small portion of people who are react to cephalexin too.

Statistics demonstrate that about 10% of penicillin allergic patients are also allergic to cephalosporins like keflex.

Therefore I suggest you discuss this further with your Dr. before taking this antibiotic.
