Voriconizole and alcohol

Hi guys,

This is my first post so hopefully I can get some advice.

I have been taking Voriconizole 200mg for 8 weeks twice a day and though i know I'm not to drink alcohol with it, I decided to the other night when catching up with a friend whom I haven't seen in a while.

Long story short, we drank a LOT over the space of 6 hours and I fell asleep at about midnight.

Some 15 hours later, I had a breath test for a medical for work and I blew 0.027.

Suffice to say I'm in a touch of strife. I know the more you drink the longer it takes for your body to process alcohol but I have drank heavily before and had a breath test in the morning and passed....and this was in less than 15 hours.

This may help me out of strife at work, is there a distinct possibility the presence of anti fungal medication already in my system would slow the release of alcohol in my blood?
