Skelaxin is used to treat muscle spasms/pain. It is usually used along with rest, physical therapy, and other treatment.
Take Skelaxin by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually 3 or 4 times a day. If you take Skelaxin after a high-fat meal and experience side effects, it may be best to take Skelaxin on an empty stomach or after a light meal.
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or use Skelaxin more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
Drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and upset stomach may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
Remember that your doctor has prescribed Skelaxin because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using Skelaxin do not have serious side effects.
Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: mental/mood changes (such as nervousness, irritability, confusion), signs of infection (such as fever, persistent sore throat), yellowing eyes/skin, unusual tiredness, fast/pounding heartbeat, dark urine.
A very serious allergic reaction to Skelaxin is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
Before taking Skelaxin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Skelaxin may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.
Before using Skelaxin, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: liver disease, kidney disease, anemia, seizures.
Skelaxin may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires alertness until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. Avoid alcoholic beverages.
Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products).
Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Skelaxin, especially dizziness, drowsiness, or confusion. These side effects can increase the risk of falling.
During pregnancy, Skelaxin should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
It is unknown if Skelaxin passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking other products that cause drowsiness including alcohol, antihistamines (such as cetirizine, diphenhydramine), drugs for sleep or anxiety (such as alprazolam, diazepam, zolpidem), muscle relaxants, and narcotic pain relievers (such as codeine).
Check the labels on all your medicines (such as allergy or cough-and-cold products) because they may contain ingredients that cause drowsiness. Ask your pharmacist about using those products safely.
