Taking blood pressure medication on summer days

Hi!  I'm an active young guy with mild hypertension, in which I'm currently taking Irbesartan every morning and is now controlled well.  I enjoy traveling in hot conditions, some days can be up to 39 degrees.  Can my blood pressure medication stand such heat if I was to say just put it in my wallet?  I'm always traveling to different places and don't always have access to a fridge or ice to take on hand.  If not, are there any other heat resistance BP medication i can try?

Hi, Irbesartan is best maintained at 25°C (77°F); excursions permitted to 15°C-30°C (59°F-86°F). So, variations upto this may not affect its efficacy. Regards.
