Skelaxin Muscle Relaxer

Skelaxin® (metaxalone) is a muscle relaxer that can help relieve muscle spasms caused by injuries. This prescription medication is approved for use in adults and children as young as 12 years old, and is used in combination with rest, physical therapy, and other treatments for relieving the pain.
As a muscle relaxer, Skelaxin works mostly in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), not directly on the muscles. Skelaxin comes in the form of a tablet and is typically taken three or four times a day.
Before using this muscle relaxer, the warnings and precautions for Skelaxin should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and non-prescription medicines), as well as any other medical conditions you may have before starting treatment with Skelaxin. Possible side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, and nausea.
