    I would think you are best to see your GP as it may not be connected to the withdrawal of Gaberpentin. It does seem quite a long time for you to have a nagging cough

    I have been trying to de tease my dose without much success.  Odd you would mention hoarseness.  I am so bad, some days I can hardly soeak. Admittedly, I smoke but this is worse then from smoking.  As for the cough, you on any other meds? My husband has a dry hack and one doctor said it might be from his BP med.

      Besides the hoarseness, I am hacking up mucus.  What BP med are you on?  My husband only started this cough a few weeks ago and has been on BP meds fir some time. Just a thought
