In brief: Depends

Are you doing the flying? If so, any sort of sedating medication is absolutely contraindicated.

that includes antihistamines for allergies, some antidepressants (Elavil, for example). Pilots on Viagra or similar meds may have vision changes that require they be off the med for several days before flying.
