Hi machelle, I am taking Trazadone and I have the 50 mg tabs that are round. I take 1-3 tabs at bedtime for sleep.  I rarely take more than 2 for 100mg dose.  Ask your physician to prescribe a range for you and your meds will be in smaller dose, no more breaking the tabs.

Hope this works for you.  ((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))

I have 2 the one Kitt has and the ones you have 3 sqaures of 50 mgs each easily to break and swallow

I can take up to 150 mgs at night and they stop the "stinking thinking"

I usually only have to take 50 to 100 mgs if alot going on and I find I do not have a hangover feeling from them at all and get a few decent hours sleep as well

Wishing you all the best
You can ask your pharmicist ( doc) to give you the round smaller ones I am sure they wont have a problem with that

Let us know how you make out
