Is there any issue with having Rivastigmine (Exelon) and codeine together?

A quick glance via Google seems to indicate concerns, and also concerns about dementia sufferers having codeine.

I ask because my mum's been having Rivastigmine for some time. Now she's having codeine for neck pain, and her faculties seem to have taken a turn for the worse.
