Brief Answer:
story meds and observe

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

There is no strong evidence to support the use of both the medications for routine use to prevent illness. Curcumin has been reported to cause or aggravate stomach problems. Mood changes have not been attributed to either drug.

As these are non essential meds, I would suggest you stop both of them. If symptoms do not improve, you will need further work up for your symptoms
