This AgingCare site already lists enhanced aggression as a known side-effect of Memantine/Namenda. Does anyone here have experience or further feedback about that? Many mental health doctors actually deny that such a side-effect even exists.

Another website lists swelling of feet/ankles, linked to congestive heart failure, as another potential side-effect. Is this well-known, and has anyone had any experience of it?

The only negative reaction my father had was very bad nausea. We had to limit him to 5mg by patch, otherwise he would throw up.
