Can it be mixed with anything else or is there a special way to do this? I find purple in the glass I used a few hours later

How to use Nexium Suspension:
Use Nexium Suspension as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.
•An extra patient leaflet is available with Nexium Suspension. Talk to your pharmacist if you have questions about this information.
•Take Nexium Suspension by mouth on an empty stomach at least 1 hour before eating.
•Tear open the medicine packet. Pour the medicine into a glass with 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of water. Stir well. Allow the mixture to thicken for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir again. Drink the mixture within 30 minutes. If any medicine remains in the glass, add more water. Stir, then drink right away.
•You may take antacids while you are using Nexium Suspension if you are directed to do so by your doctor.
•Continue to take Nexium Suspension even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.
•If you miss a dose of Nexium Suspension, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Nexium Suspension.
