Hello Cherry, 500 mgs is a lot to start on. I hope your doctor wasn't making a mistake, unless you were on a high dose of some other drug that the doctor was crossing you over from. Usually the beginng subscribing dose of Trazodone is 25-50 mg. About eating with it, yes it's the best way to get full benefits from it. If you take it at bedtime try to eat something small such as a cracker etc.. I hope this has helped... best to you.
