Suppose one's minhag is to daven Nussach A; but, one finds oneself in a synagogue, which only has siddurim of Nussach B, and one has not committed all of Nussach A to memory. He could daven Nussach A and look in the Siddur as well for help when he forgets but it adds confusion to the davening.

Does Halakhhah permit one to daven Nussach B in such a situation?

    I would assume its better to daven a real teffilah tjan a mumble jumble. In addition many poskim write that one can alwats switch from sefard to ashknaz since that was the original nusach,also see the back of the Noam Elimelech which surprisingly says this idea as well – sam Jan 31 '17 at 14:17

    I am not sure why this is for the sake of convenience. It sounds more like for the sake of Davening properly. – Gershon Gold Jan 31 '17 at 21:25

    @SAH Any Poseik who rules for everyone that only that Poseik's Nusach is the one that you can switch to, should probably be summarily ignored. – Double AA Feb 2 '17 at 17:11

    I hate to be "that guy", but can you please edit into your question why you think that switching nuschaos should be at all problematic? Why can't a person daven a different nusach just because s/he feels like it? – Shimon bM Feb 3 '17 at 0:47
