I am concerned about sunburn and I have heard that the side-effects causing sunburn can stay in the body for a few months after taking the full dosage.

The FDA recommends the following for patients taking Cipro - a quinolone antibiotic:
"Patients should be advised to minimize or avoid exposure to natural or artificial sunlight (eg, tanning beds or ultraviolet A/B treatment) while taking quinolones. Those who need to be outdoors during therapy should wear loose-fitting clothes that protect the skin from sun exposure and to adopt other sun-protection measures such as sunscreen, if possible."
There is no need for precautions once the medicine is stopped.
