Suffering from hearing problems. Taking Ativan after the neck surgery, Is this a known reaction of ativan ?

I am a 32 year old female and I have been having trouble with the hearing in my left ear for nearly two years now. It crackles like a blown speaker but only some of the time, especially if I am listening to artificial sounds rather than general conversation. I have used nasal decongestant sprays to reduce any inflammation of the eustacian tubes will but they have not helped to solve the problem. It seems to get worse when I use ativan prescribed to me after my neck sugery. Is this a known reaction of ativan? I only take 1mg about one to two times per month.

Hi,

Welcome to HelathcareMagic Forum,
Have got your ears checked up and the hearing tests done? Do you have any loss of hearing associated with this? There are no documentary evidence stating that Lorazepam can cause hearing disturbances.

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Hi there, I was given two ativans (i don t know the dosages) today, within a half hour of each other, as by the time the doctor was ready to proceed with my procedure the first one seemed to have worn off. I feel calm and and a bit clumsy right now but nothing too serious. I am staying with family and as my doctor is out of town and we were thinking of going out for some dinner. I was wondering you think it would be okay if I were to have a beer with dinner or if I should hold off.
