I am hoping that someone is able to help me. I have been taking diazepam (Bensedin purchased online) for about 4 years to help me with insomnia. For the last 12 months I have noticed that my breathing pattern is slightly abnormal but I just put this down to habit and tried to ignore it. However, recently my breathing difficulties have started to bother me as I am constantly taking deep breaths every minute or so. I decided to stop taking diazepam, which I have done gradually but my breathing problems are not improving. I am certain that I am not suffering with withdrawal or anxiety. I was just wondering whether anyone else has experienced this issue and, if so, whether my breathing will improve/return to normal over time or whether it is now permanently damaged? Any advise would be much appreciated. Sam
