Stop taking it: I have never heard of or seen this reaction from any of my patients, or read it anywhere, but idiosyncrasies can occur with any drug, meaning people can have unusual reactions that can't be predicted or even explained always. Red/purple color changes usually mean there is some vascular problem, reduction of blood flow in arteries/veins. Talk to your doctor!
