we started giving him antibiotics we had left from last time and saw a bit of improvement.
now out of no where i look over and he can't walk straight, he falls completely over. he has an apatite, eating veggies as i type. he's also been munching on his pellets.
my biggest question is should this be addressed immediately cuz it's 10:40pm and no local vets open. we are calling an emergency number. or could this wait until 8am??
i could drive a distance to a 24 hour vet if need be

The fact that he's eating means he's not in pain and not having any GI problems. I'd confine him in one end of the cage so he can't get too far from his food and water and not be able to get back. Put all his food and hay close to the water, and put him in there with it. I'm betting he'll be ok.
I had a similar thing happen with one of my pigs. She ate an entire meal on my lap laying on her side because she couldn't sit up straight. I fixed an enclosure like I described above and put her in it. When I got up the next morning, she was fine. The vet checked her over, pronounced her OK, and we didn't even get any meds.
