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?

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.
