No: Check out https://online.Epocrates.Com/noframe/showpage.Do?Method=drugs;monographid=1154 and http://www.Drugs.Com/sfx/prozac-side-effects.Html. While the 80% of Prozac (fluoxetine) is excreted by the kidneys, it does not require any dosing adjustment for kidney disease nor does it cause any kidney problems.

No: Prozac (fluoxetine) does not cause kidney problems. In fact it is proven to be quite safe in people with renal failure. Best wishes.
Psychiatry 26 years experience
No.: Prozac (fluoxetine) does not usually cause kidney problems. It may inhibit liver enzymes that metabolize other drugs and cause the levels to go up.
