I have test anxiety, and when interviewing I often get so stressed that I have difficulty completing tasks in the interview that I normally wouldn't have trouble completing.

I recently went through an interview where I was so nervous that I feel like I did poorly on one coding question in particular, something that I would normally have no trouble with otherwise.

How do you overcome nervousness and anxiety when interviewing? Is it wise to inform the interviewer ahead of time that you have anxiety?

Practice, practice, practice. It doesn't recreate the stress of an interview, but it will help you form habits you can rely on when you are stressed. There are any number of book on programming interviews. Get together with a programmer friend and run through mock interviews. You may also get lucky in the real interviews and be asked a problem similar to one you've already done.
