Suggest medication to avoid unwanted pregnancy

I had unprotected sex today, the condom broke so im scared but im pretty sure he didn't ejaculate inside of me. I just want to eliminate all possible chances of pregnancy. I saw that nordette can be used as an ecp. I plan on drinking 4 tablets right now and 4 again after 12 hours. Is this safe and will i get the assurance of not being pregnant? i am 18 years old, 5 ft, 100lbs and allergic to penicillin. thank you
