Roo, Given you are taking 2100mg of Neurontin I suspect that if you just carefully taper down the Neurontin you may find the relief you are seeking-especially if you are just cyclothymic. I would try dropping it 300mg for a week at a time (checking how you feel) down to 1200mg/day and stop there for a while. If I went above 900mg/day I just got sleepy and tired.

You mentioned Trileptal. I would try dose reduction of Neurontin first B4 any consideration of Trileptal. I was titrating my dose up from the smallest you can take (75mg/day) over a few weeks to 300mg/day. When I hit 300mg/day (which isn't much mind you) I got VERY nauseous and vomited a couple of times. I am very touchy with anything that causes nausea. But despite that, I experienced a definite mood elevation and a stimulant effect. My pdoc had tried switching some patients from Tegretol to Trileptal (which is supposed to be a cleaner version of Teg) and they had manic reactions. So given that and the nausea it got stopped.

hope this helps
Mitch
