Many antihistamines cause significant drowsiness and can cause serious problems when used in combination with other medications that cause drowsiness, such as OxyContin. Taking an antihistamine with OxyContin may also increase the risks of other side effects (such as constipation or difficulty passing urine). Check with your healthcare provider before taking OxyContin with an antihistamine, including non-prescription antihistamines.
