Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You need to understand that drinking alcohol is injurious to health, so avoid alcohol at all costs. If you really have to drink to impress your boss then it is recommended that you take the medicines as you do regularly, do not change the timings. Your blood glucose values are borderline high range. Alcohol can increase risk of low blood sugar levels since you are already on these medicines, so try to mix your drinks and dilute with soda or water. Kindly dilute all drinks to avoid surge in alcohol levels which can interact with the medicines and increase cholesterol level.
