Brief Answer:
Yes it is

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

There are no known drug interactions between rivastigmine, memantine (namenda) and b12. So they can safely be combined together.

It may help in improving the response also.

Hope this helps. I will be available for further follow up.

Regards

Do you have any information as to the effectiveness of the B12 with the Namanda and the patch?

Brief Answer:
No it is not proven

Detailed Answer:
Though b12 deficiency is considered as one of the factors in Alzheimer's disease, treatment with b12 has not been shown to be of benefit in the disease. Hence there is no data to show benefit of combining b12 with any other drugs.

But there is no interaction and no harm in adding it to any of the drugs you mentioned. There is a potential of benefit based upon biochemical pathway, but never proven till date in clinical studies
