Chronic cough: You may have reactive airway disease or asthma. You may also have upper respiratory tract allergies with post-nasal drip when you lie down which irritate your throat and cause coughing. Try an antihistamin to see if it helps. If the cough is productive of phlegm and there is fever, you may need antibiotics.

Depends on age: In children a cough at night may be an indication of chronic adenoiditis; possibly even sinusitis. In an adult i would lean more towards acid reflux as a cause.

Diff. diagnosis: The diagnosis of chronic cough can be tricky. The fact that your cough has lasted 3 months raises a few different possibilities. 95% of chronic cough is a combination of asthma, post-nasal drip and/or gastric reflux. It often takes a careful history and a therapeutic trial of medication to determine the exact cause. It is time to have a talk with your doctor and possibility a referral.

Medication: Treatment to prevent your night coughing depends on what is causing the cough. Nocturnal coughing often occurs from 2 to 4 in the morning and with the correct medication is should be controlled. Reflux of acid from the stomach can also cause coughing at night and treatment is effective. The key is the diagnosis and you should see your physician.
