Feeling tired: Fatigue is the most common side effect followed by abdominal pain, headache and dry mucous membranes. More rare but serious side effects include allergic reaction/anaphylaxis, bronchospasm or liver toxicity.

Yes: Ampicillin is a beta lactam antibiotic- closely related to penicillin. It is part of the aminopenicillin family and is roughly equivalent to Amoxicillin in terms of spectrum and level of activity. I would avoid it until you have had a chance to get penicillin testing through your doctor.

Hives: Urticaria is the medical term for hives. Usually, an itchy rash with raised red spots. Often it's caused by an allergic reaction but can also be from having an infection etc. An allergist can test you for possible causes and treatments.
