In brief: Not ideal

The regimen for patients with diabetes should control blood sugars adequately, so that first am (fasting) bgs are in the normal range, ideally 80-120.
The timing of meds around this reading is less important than the reading itself which, if high, indicates a likely need for modification to diet, exercise, meds, or all three.
