In brief: In general anytime

There are many times of diabetic medications and it does not matter when you eat, however, there are medications known as sulfonaureals that require that you eat almost immediately after taking the medication or your sugar will drop to low.
Im assuming of course that you are not talking about insulun where you have to eat almost immediatly with short acting insulins.
