Skelaxin/Metaxalone 800mg

Cherry2012CCherry2012 Posts: 7
For the painful cramp/spasm in my leg, my GP rx'ed Metaxalone 800 mg. which is generic version of Skelaxin 800 mg. four times per day.

For the past two days, I cut the pill in a half by using a pill-cutter and took four times per day since the 800 mg. per day seems awful dosage for me as seeing cramp/spasm occurs only once a week or so. Also, my legs appears 'tired' for some reason. btw, I'm NOT over-weight person, average-weight all in my life.

It works good, .... but I feel pretty medicated to the point where I want to lay down on the couch in the middle of day.

If any of you have an experience taking this med., Skelaxin, I truly appreciate any thoughts on this med.



  • Hi, I had ADCF 8 weeks ago and started off taking Valium for muscle tightness/spams but am now taking the skelaxin. I must have quite the tolerance, as I am taking twice a day and it doesn't wipe me out. Although I am not sure it helps so am going to go off of it and see what happens.
