```Setting InterpolationOrder->1 within your Interpolation function, and you can often fix the undesirable outcome you have identified.

The derivative curve you will get with Interpolation[]' can look very weird. I find I get better results using Interpolation[..., Method->"Spline"]'. The Spline function is continuous in first and second derivatives, so the resulting derivative is smoother.
