metaxalone is the generic...

I found this and did not know if this applys, but I did find this interesting:

"Do not use Skelaxin if you are allergic to metaxalone, or if you have anemia (a lack of red blood cells), or severe kidney or liver disease.

Before using Skelaxin, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have liver or kidney disease. You may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take Skelaxin.

Skelaxin can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Avoid drinking alcohol. It can increase some of the side effects of Skelaxin."
"How should I take Skelaxin?
Take Skelaxin exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

This medication can cause you to have unusual results with certain medical tests. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using Skelaxin.

Skelaxin is only part of a complete program of treatment that may also include rest, physical therapy, or other pain relief measures. Follow your doctor's instructions.

Store Skelaxin at room temperature away from moisture and heat."

Do not keep this in the bathroom as it is too humid in there.
