In brief: Need more info.

It would depend on the amount of alcohol and the type of meds.
If social drinking (meaning 3 or less over a few hours), then 2-3 hours afterwards should be OK (and for the meds listed above). If more heavy intake, then need to wait longer. If an hour lapses for each drink, then you are most likely OK for medicating.
