Certain medications can cause tinnitus (noise in the ears). Medications that have adverse effects on the inner ear are called ototoxic (ototoxicity). However, given the time lag, this seems less likely in your case.

You should be seen by a doctor, preferably an ENT, and get a hearing test to rule out any hearing loss or other problems with your ears. Good luck!
