There's more than enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that it does. If you look up the gigantic Memantine thread on addforums, you'll find a poster called surferdude who's been on the combination for more than two years. He's also either currently in med school, or a graduate (I forget the exact details) and is interning at a hospital, so I doubt his IQ is impaired.
