In brief: Avoid the DUI

Moderate consumption of alcohol probably won't affect the meds you take, especially when they are not taken at the time of drinking.
1-2 drink/day may actually be good for your health, depending what type you are drinking. Excess alcohol/dui can kill with or without use of medication. So, drink responsibly. Drink for good health. Drink to make good friends. Avoid the dui. Good luck.
