Methaxalonum Pharmacology

Metaxalone is a skeletal muscle relaxant 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.

Methaxalonum Absorption

The absolute bioavailability of metaxalone from Skelaxin tablets is not known.

Methaxalonum side effects and Toxicity

LD50=775mg/kg (Rat, oral); LD50=1690 mg/kg (Mouse, oral). When determining the LD50 in rats and mice, progressive sedation, hypnosis and finally respiratoryfailure were noted as the dosage increased. In dogs, no LD50 could be determined as the higher doses produced an emetic action in 15 to 30 minutes.
