In brief: Hard to know

I would tend to trust the ENT about his recommendations.
Unfortunately it does not sound as if he explained why he thought you should stop the medicine. Very often patients see their primary care doctors complaining that their ear bothers them and are told their ear is red or there is some fluid. I look and the ear is completely normal. Ears are tricky sometimes. It may be your jaw not your ear.

In brief: Fluid in ears

Usually fluid in your ears is not treated unless it is there for an extended amount of time.
You did not state what medications you were given but usually they are not too helpful. I would listen to the ENT who you consuslted.
