Brief Answer:
stop both medications and see if symptoms improve

Detailed Answer:
Both these medications can cause these symptoms. I would advice you to stop both medications. It your symptoms improve after stopping them. You can restart them one at a time. And see which medicine is causing the problem.and discontinue that medication.
In case your symptoms don't improve after stopping these two medications I would advise you to consult your doctor .hope this helps.

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
