Dear XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

He should take his medicine as per prescription and there is no need to wait for a certain period of time after the drink.
Not using medicine for a certain time is more likely to cause problem than use after drink.
Having said this ask your boyfriend to be abstinent from the drink or use only moderate dose.
