What is your psychiatric history? That's the most important thing. Neurontin is not as "first line" as, say, lithium or divalproex as a mood stabiliser. You may well need an antidepressant, but the dose probably needs to be lowered. Antidepressants, apart from causing switching (from depression to mania), also cause rapid cycling (flip-flopping of mood). It can be impossible to lead an effective life while this is going on.

Good luck.
