Hmmmm...gabapetin is usually given for nerve pain (although I am a nurse, not a vet!), so I am not sure why the vet gave this. We have had a cognitively impaired dog in the past, and currently have a 15 1/2 year old pug who has one eye, cataracts in the other which makes her vision poor, does not hear well, and definitely is cognitively impaired. With her dementia and extreme old age, she sleeps alot, and needs to be gently guided toward the door, to her food dish, etc. We have not had issues with her waking at night and wandering. Would it help your dog if you crated him at night? Please let us know how you successfully deal with this!
