Certainly. An employer has ZERO duty to allow your meds as an excuse for failing to perform as required, whether you tell the boss of the drugs or not.

Is the medication Trazadone a deployable medication?

I'm not certain what you mean by deployable; if that means can you travel with this medication the answer is yes as long as you have a valid Rx. If you're asking whether it causes dependence and is abusable the answer would be no (in most cases). Trazadone is an atypical antidepressant that is prescribed primarily for patients diagnosed with depression who also experience difficulty sleeping. It is also prescribed to persons with substance abuse problems who are also dealing with insomnia. In other words it is also used as a a sleeping medication primarily for persons who have difficulty sleeping BUT for whom it would be inadvisable to put on Ambien (Zolpidem), Restoril (temazepam), and other controlled substances (schedule IV-US) that would have a large probability of abuse as well as cause dependence and possibly cause the substance abuser to return to his or her drug of choice. If by deployable you mean are they prescribed to active persons in the military or to veterans the answer again is yes. I tried to cover all possible answers to your question and hope this helps. If not, repost and I'll try to answer your question.
