In brief: Yes

Dimenhydrinate is a histamine antagonist designed to counter some of the ill effects of motion in cars and boats to which some persons are prone.
One of its major side effects is drowsiness. Before taking dimenhydrinate you should check with your doctor that it does not interact with any other medications you are already on.
