PEA can make some people very nervous. It is a very strong CNS stimulant. It can also lead to acute relapses in people with psychotic disorders.

I think that the term "anxiety" can mean very different things for different people, and that different biochemical imbalances may cause the same symptoms. So to say that a drug does or doesn't help anxiety may not be descriptive enough.

Some people with ADHD say that stimulants help their anxiety, which may be caused by a lack of attention, and they may be nervous about things pertaining to concentration. OTOH, if I am worried about how my microwave is giving me cancer, then a stimulant like medication may make this worse.

If anxiety for you is GI problems, then an SSRI might not be good, and if anxiety for you is heart palpatitions then a TCA might not be good.

So, I think it depends on what kind of anxiety you have.
