Weaning: By ½ tablet then 1/4 and so on, under the supervision of your prescriber should be okay. If you continue to have trouble with insomnia, you may wish to discuss alternative meds, restarting trazodone, or discuss sleep study, etc, to determine the underlying cause of your sleep problem with your MD. Good luck!
