Can you use antihistamine and wine?

In brief: Not a good idea

Antihistamines (especially the older ones such as benadryl) can cause drowsiness and impairment and this can be worsened by the effect of alcohol even at regular doses.
There are other allergy medications available that can be taken if a glass of wine is desired.
