Storage Information

Most ciprofloxacin products should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The oral liquid suspension can be stored in the refrigerator; however, do not allow it to freeze. The ear and eye drops should be protected from light. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. Refer to the storage directions for your particular product.
