curcumin supplements are not well studied with conventional medications

most likely it will be 100% safe to take

but you should let your doctors know you are going to take this supplement.

I'm sorry you have anxiety symptoms.

curcumin also called tumeric is good at helping decrease inflammation in your body

but also eating healthy with more fruits and vegetables and regular exercise can help decrease inflammation in your body as well.
