I would disagree with Betsy on only two points: one, don't start out a relationship with your physician by "not mentioning" that you got Valium without a prescription before college. If you don't have a big drug history otherwise, the doc shouldn't hold it against you in the big scheme of things. Doctors know that teenagers do things like that. And you'll look even more like a drug seeker if you don't mention it and somewhere down the line end up having to admit that "Valium worked once, so why not again?"

Two, in some people, Zyprexa in tiny doses like 2.5 mg has helped certain anxiety disorders. It wouldn't be a general first or second line medication for most people, but for some, yes. The mechanism appears to be along the same lines as how Mellaril in tiny doses has been given since the 60's to people with depressive anxiety and to geriatric patients with certain anxious emotional problems.
