My father has taken diazepam every evening when he goes to sleep since 1976. He hasn't had any withdrawal problems or tolerance, still taking the same 5-10mg a night. It's not tolerance I would be worried about.

On the other hand, he doesn't seem as sharp as he used to be. He seems like he has trouble understanding some things. It's not outright dementia, but benzodiazepines in the long-term have been shown to cause cognitive dysfunction. In his case, it may not be the diazepam causing the problem, because he was never as intelligent as his sisters in the first place.

Still, that's something to keep in mind.
