Any health risks if pills are taken as directed but they have not been refrigerated the entire time?

I am flying to Thailand and was given four Typhoid pills to be taken on days 1, 3, 5 and 7 however I'm not sure they will be refrigerated the entire trip. I do have a doctor's note to see if the airplane will refrigerate in transit and hotels should have fridges. Any health risks if pills are taken as directed but they have not been refrigerated the entire time? Thanks so much in advance.

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
You have not mentioned the name of that medicine, so to say anything without this is not possible, the medicine given for typhoid is antibiotic, and this can be kept in room temperature, and in dark place, its all,,,, have nice day.
