Can Guaifenesin be taken while on Gabapentin?

I have a dry bad cough and cannot sleep . I presently take gabapentin(100 ml) and wonder if its safe to take guaifenesin liquid that I have in my med shelf with the gabapentin. I m also on a course of NYSTATIN for the past two weeks. Thank you. YYYY@YYYY

Hello,

Yes, it may be taken while on Gabapentin drug. Guaifenesin is an expectorant drug used to reduce chest congestion caused by the common cold, infections, or allergies.

Since, there is no documented evidence of any harmful interaction with Gabapentin; Guaifenesin may be taken along with it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali
