SKELAXIN (METAXALONE)

Try Skelaxin to Treat Sprains, Strains, and Muscle Spasms

Skelaxin is a skeletal muscle relaxant that can be taken along with physical therapy and rest so you can be up and about and return to work, school, or other activities you take part in. Some people have also found Skelaxin to be beneficial for Temporomandibular Joint disorder (TMJ or TMD) as a short-term relief drug to relax the muscles that surround your jaw as they can become tight. You may find that Skelaxin makes you drowsy so you will be able to rest better without the pain or discomfort of sore skeletal muscles.

How Muscle Relaxants Work

Skeletal muscles are attached by tendons to bones and they are responsible for all movements made by body parts, such as arms and legs. The fibers of these muscles are bound together by connective tissue which includes tendons, cartilage, and bone. Connective tissues can communicate with nerves and blood vessels.

When you step wrong and sprain your ankle, this action can tear or stretch ligaments or if you have lifted a heavy object, you may tear or stretch a muscle or tendon in your back. These injuries can be very painful and you will benefit from a muscle relaxant. Skelaxin (Metaxalone) is presumed to work by causing central nervous system (CNS) depression which involves the brain and spinal cord. This action can help your body relax so there is less pain or further damage to muscles, tendons, or cartilage as the pain signal is stopped before it can reach your brain.

Risk Factors for Sprains and Strains

Being in shape has gained a lot of popularity and more people are purchasing memberships for gyms, taking up sports, and joining in local races or marathons. A weekend athlete needs to remember that you should not simply wake up one day, put on your jogging outfit, plug in your favorite music, and hit the road. You need to learn the correct way to warm-up prior to these activities or you risk a strain, sprain, or muscle and ligament fatigue. Try easing into your exercise routine, eat sensibly, lose weight, and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Before You Take Skelaxin

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding to be certain Skelaxin will not cause harm to your unborn or nursing baby. Advise your doctor of other medical conditions or allergies you have and list all OTC and Rx meds you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This can determine if Skelaxin is safe for you to take.

Proper Use of Skelaxin

Do not stop, start, or change the dosage of any medications you take as this could raise your risk of adverse effects of Skelaxin or other drugs you are on. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share these products with anyone else. Until you know how your body will react to Skelaxin, refrain from driving or taking part in any activities that may appear unsafe.
