If you do a search on PubMed, you will find quite a few articles on Neorontin(Gababentin)being used for bipolar, although cyclothymia is not mentioned specifically.
I am currently on 2800mg of Neurontin as a monotherapy for mixed state bipolar.
I have experienced both the "munchies" Elizabeth mentioned and the sedation Sean mentioned. Both of these, along with blurry vision, occur about a day after raising the dose and seem (for me) to go away after a few days. I have also noticed I am clumsier lately, dropping and spilling things frequently. This may just be some residual sedation or an adjustment to the medication.
I have not noticed any horrible side effects I experienced with Lithium and other mood stabilizers and think it would be safe to give it a try if your doctor thinks this could help you.
