I have a question about consuming alcohol while on aerius

This answer was rated:

i have a question about consuming alcohol while on aerius (an antihistamine)? i was on aerius till last week and drank a glass of wine and it made me crave for a lot of sweets and water. i stopped taking the aerius two days later and i'm feeling better. is it not ok to drink alcohol while on aerius? thanks
The only problem with drinking alcohol while on an antihistamine is that the antihistamine can potientiate the effects of the alcohol--it can make you drowsy and can decrease your reaction time and your alertness. The water craving was probably because the combination can cause extra urination and relative dehydration

can this be a sign of kidney disease (renal disease)?

Not if it were only a brief event. If it continued it could be a sign of diabetes
