Skelaxin is a prescription muscle relaxant. It is approved for use in combination with rest, physical therapy, and other treatments for relieving the pain associated with short-term "musculoskeletal conditions," such as muscle spasms due to an injury.
Since you mention a stroke to be involved, it would be best to seek medical advice before you use Skelaxin.
Take care, best wishes!
