I have had a cough for 10 years and was prescribed gabipentin for it in 300 mg 3 x's a day. No weight gain and my body will gain weight. Still coughing. Why were you described this drug?

I have been taking 300ml for the last year and half, and have been losing weight, they help so much with muscle fatigue with me, and also help me go to sleep at night

No weight gain, but told I should be very careful about mixing it with alcohol. Has anyone tried any alternatives to gabapentin? One of the members of my MS support group has tried it, but not tolerating it well.
