Hi,

Name of the prescribed antibiotic not mentioned however it appears to be safe for the kidneys. Amoxicillin is commonly prescribed to treat urine infection during pregnancy which is considered to be safe. Assuming that your daughter also takes amoxicillin there is nothing to worry it does not cause any harmful effects on the kidneys.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
