- corticosteroids (steroids): a 1999 study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found that the main polyphenol in turmeric , the pigment saffron known as curcumin compares favorably with steroids management previous chronic uveitis, inflammatory eye disease. [ii] a 2008 study published in Critical Care Medicine found that curcumin compared favorably with the drug dexamethasone corticosteroid in the animal model as an alternative for protecting lung injury transplant associated therapy down the regulation of inflammatory genes. [iii] an earlier 2003 study published in Cancer Letters found the same drug also compared favorably with dexamethasone in a model of pulmonary ischemia-repurfusion.

- Prozac / fluoxetine and imipramine (antidepressants): A 2011 study published in the journalActa Poloniae Pharmaceutica found curcumin compared favorably to both drugs to reduce depressive behavior in an animal model [v] [paraadicional curcumin and depression research – five abstracts]

- metformin (diabetes drug): a 2009 study published in the journal Biochemitry and Biophysics research Community explored how curcumin could be valuable in the treatment of diabetes , finding that AMPK active (increases glucose uptake) and suppresses gene expression gluconeogenesis (which suppresses glucose production in the liver) in hepatoma cells. Interestingly, they found curcumin to be 500 times to 100,000 times (in the form known as tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC)) more potent than metformin on AMPK activation and subsequent acetyl-CoA carboxylase destination (ACC).
