I was on Trentol then Pletol and my rheumatologist switched me to Norvasc instead, for better circulation. It also is helping with the Raynaud's. It is working great for me.

My legs have been killing me lately, but they aren't purple. I would touch base with your doctor.

take care,

Nan

I was on Trentol many years ago without results. My feet are a deep red with blotches of deep purple. That will never change. I've been to a vascular surgeon who did a test and said blood flow was good to the legs and feet and discoloration was due to the Raynauds which resulted in the bursting of blood vessels and is permanent.

 

Why don't you check with a vascular surgeon to make sure blood flow is adequate to your lower limbs. Test is quick and you'll be done in no time. It's totally non invasive. :)
