Thyroid Disease and Antihistamines?

Is it possible for an antihistamine to cause a psychotic episode? Maybe not even a psychotic episode but short term memory loss, insomnia, personality loss/change, but not enough that the person doesn't realize that they are being inhibited mentally? Then all of it stops after the antihistamine is discontinued?

Diphenhydramine and promethazine both can induce psychosis.
