SKELAXIN (metaxalone) is indicated as an adjunct to rest, physical therapy, and other measures for the relief of discomforts associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions. The mode of action of this drug has not been clearly identified, but may be related to its sedative properties. Metaxalone does not directly relax tense skeletal muscles in man.
Diclofenac is indicated:
* For relief of the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis
* For relief of the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
* For acute or long-term use in the relief of signs and symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis.
Both drugs are taken for pain, however it is better to talk with your pharmacist/doc for more advice, hope this helps.
