In brief: Not the best option

For those who have a b vitamin deficiency, taking supplements may be helpful to some degree.
Those who don't may notice more energy which can sometimes worsen anxiety. Exercise, eating a healthy diet (less sugar and caffeine) and cognitive behavioral therapy are other ways to manage anxiety.
