Actually, actually antibiotics may be harmful to the kidneys. In additions, if the kidneys are already weak, some antibiotics can cause further kidney damage, such as nitrofurantoin. People who take antibiotics on a regular basis should have their kidney function checked. Besides, some antibiotics like chloromycetin can be broken down by liver, so they usually do not affect kidney function or put a strain on kidneys. Whereas, some antibiotics are removed out of the body by urine. In this case, it means the kidneys are responsible for breaking down them. Thus, if patients with kidney disease, antibiotics like penicillin which have renal toxicity should be avoided.
