Amoxicillin

Is it possible that Amoxicillin can cause optic nerve damage in an infant? My daughter was given Amoxicillin for just over two weeks starting 2 days after birth for hydronephrosis. She has optic atrophy but there were no complications during pregnancy or during labor.

No that would be highly unlikely. You can do your own research but that is not reported.
