      Maybe ativan?
      Hi there,

      Ativan (and , maybe a lack of sleep) caused my tinnitus. At first I just stopped cold turkey, currently in the process of slowlyyy tapering down now.

      The damage is done now, and I was just wondering if anyone in a similar situation has had it to away, or knows of any instances of it going away for benzo/ativan users.

      Thank you.

      I've read numerous accounts of benzo withdrawal induced tinnitus which eventually resolved after months/years off of benzos, and a few cases where it didn't.

      Wait, did you get the tinnitus when you were first taking it, or when you stopped cold-turkey?

      There's a good chance it'll reduce or go away but it might take a long time...
