In brief: No, but st john wort

As far as i know, vitamin supplements do not treat anxiety.
St john's wort supplement may help; it is one of the most commonly prescribed antidepressant in germany. It works similarly to meds such as zoloft/prozac etc..Which may help with your anxiety. Constantly tired maybe something else..Lack of sleep, anemia, hypothyroid, etc...Please try to see a doc..Some are quite nice/good! good luck.

In brief: Niacin; anxiety

Niacin has many uses, most commonly to help reduce cholesterol, but by itself may not do much for anxiety.
The b vitamins as a whole are called "stress vitamins"; so a b-complex vitamin that contains all of them may benefit your anxiety as well as provide some extra energy. B-vitamins are water-soluble & are depleted rapidly. Take one (or eat b-rich foods) every day. Exercise also helps anxiety.
