Our expert says:
No. There is some evidence ( not an awful lot ) that St John's Wort can be useful for Depression ( not severe anxiety ) and only in MILD depression. It appears to work, chemically, in a way similar to the prozac family of antidepressants, but more weakly.
Inderal, a beta-blocker often helps reduce the physical components of anxiety, without necessarily helping the emotional / psychological aspects of it.
People with any chronic and troubling condition, including MS, may of course have every right to feel anxious, but I haven't heard of MS being a direct CAUSE of anxiety.
Neither ADs nor Wort will help grief, of course. But for all the conditions, CBT style counselling / psychotherapy can be really useful, and would surely be really worth trying.
