Regarding Ciprofloxacin stability. All I could tell you is whatever the manufacturer states in the package insert. The temperature range limitations are usually common indoor storage temps. If cipro were the drug I wanted to rely on I would just get a fresh supply for each trip. As it deteriorates it basically just becomes less effective. Not what you really want. However, in all honesty I 've taken stuff thats been poorly stored and expired for over five years with no negative effects (ymmv).Think about this also; one of the potential side effects of ciprofloxacin is tendon rupture. I doubt you want that. It easy enough to rupture tendons in a "get off".
If you ask your doc about this side effect, he'll probably say he's never seen it and that may be true. But....do you want to be the first one he's seen ?
