You are right, I hadn't thought of the existence of a 522mg tablet as a potential advantage.

I am a pretty well informed layman when it comes to pharmacology and chemistry, and I can't think of any major advantage to using the hydrobromide salt instead of the hydrochloride salt. Perhaps it dissociates at a different rate, thereby changing the rate of absorption. Since the bromide ion is larger, it would tend to dissociate more in solution. Another, slightly wild-eyed, thought that I had is that perhaps the bromide adds a sedative effect. Bromides used to be used as sedatives in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but were supplanted by better pharmaceuticals and disappeared.

The Aplenzins seem well-manufactured and are kind of pretty, slippery little things. (You know you've been on medication for too long when you start admiring pills for their aesthetic properties.) I like taking them, but I could not afford them if I was paying for them.
