No: Ativan (lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine that give you a sensation you are drunk. With labrynthitis you feel dizziness, so theoretically the ativan (lorazepam) can make your labrynthitis worse.

No: You may be thinking about meclizine, rather than lorazepam. Meclizine is indicated for vertigo/motion sickness, but is usually given prophylactically.
