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.

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.
