Brief Answer:
Hello dear. You should take it after chemo

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the query. As there is no such data regarding interaction of chemo drugs and turmeric, you should take it after completing chemo drugs to avail the maximum benefit of anticancer properties of turmeric.
Thanks and regards
