I recently took cipro for about five days before I had to stop taking it because it appeared I was getting side affects...my question is how long after I stop taking it do the side affects last?

Usually not more than a week. However, an important question in your case would be what you are taking cipro for. I checked your profile and there was no mention of other diagnoses. What you suspect as drug toxicity could be a manifestation related to the disease.
