Most capsules are gelatin. I copied from the tetracycline listed here on but this composition may vary slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer especially dyes and such if that is what you are looking for. Like I said, the main ingredient for capsules is gelatin. Here is the ingredient list I found on this site:

Each capsule, for oral administration, contains 250 mg or 500 mg Tetracycline hydrochloride, and has the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, D&C Yellow #10, gelatin, pregelatinized starch, propylene glycol, shellac glaze (modified), stearic acid, and titanium dioxide. The 250 mg capsules also contain black iron oxide, FD&C Blue #1 Aluminum Lake, FD&C Blue #2 Aluminum Lake, FD&C Red #40 Aluminum Lake, and FD&C Yellow #6. The 500 mg capsules also contain ammonium hydroxide, FD&C Blue #1, FD&C Red #40, and simethicone. free discount card
