Main character Klaus is often shown having flashbacks or nightmares because of trauma he's suffered due to his powers and his father. These usually send him into having some sort of anxiety or panic attack until he uses drugs to stop them.

Graphic panic attack in the ep 1 intro (around the 2 min mark), when Rue is a child, and later the same episode at the party Rue talks explicitly about a panic attack just after the 40 min mark (pretty short scene though) - could be others, haven't seen every ep yet

While there are no explicit straightforward anxiety attacks, there are many instances of characters displaying mental health issues explicitly, most notably depression.

Adora has anxiety attack nightmares/night terrors whenever she sleeps. I do wonder if it’s an imitation of ptsd because she can’t calm down/relax and is always on hyper alert.

The protagonist and a certain character share a scene in the bathroom, where the latter is clearly hyperventilating while the protagonist is uncomfortable, scared. A dark shadow is spread on the floor and the character portrait changes to portray their anxiety. This scene is unskippable. There are also several other, debatable, moments of anxiety in which the protagonist is clearly unnerved as they face a manifestation of their phobia. The last boss also features similar traits of anxiety.

In MAG 116 and MAG 118, while not exactly anxiety attacks, two main characters have breakdowns over information being forced into their heads by one of the antagonists.
