I am using antacid/diphen/lido mouthwash, but after using it, my mouth and tongue feel numb. Is this normal?

Yes, the Lido in it is Lidocaine, it is a topical anesthetic. The FDA does warn that it may cause numbness, as well as nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness.

Are you on any other medications?

Antacid/Diphen/Lido is an abbreviation for Antacid / Diphenhydramine / Lidocaine.

Numbness is an effect of the Lidocaine which is a local anesthetic.

Any dizziness and light headedness are possible side effects of Diphenhydramine. [1] It is an antihistamine, intended to bring down swelling. If the side effects do not go away or get worse, let your doctor know.
