Of course. It's a tricyclic one (TCA)

> What do you mean by hypomania? Do you mean inability to sit down, etc.

No, the inability to sit down or stand still for more than a few second is called akathisia. Which is rarely caused by antidepressants and more frequently with antipsychotics It is frequently confused with agitation, but it's not.
Hypomania is frequently triggered by antidepressants.
If you search wikipedia for both terms you will find many information about these stuff.

> That is what seems to have happened to me which can only be controlled by Neurontin. I also have tremor and agitation. Maybe there is more to this than they realize.

Neurontin acts as a sedative mood-stabilizer with no anti-akathisic action, afaik. So, perhaps you are experiencing hypomania. It's hard for me to say.
