DRUG INTERACTIONS

The sedative effects of SKELAXIN and other CNS depressants (e.g., alcohol, benzodiazepines, opioids, tricyclic antidepressants) may be additive. Therefore, caution should be exercised with patients who take more than one of these CNS depressants simultaneously.

Due to the potential for SS, caution is advised when metaxalone is co-administered with drugs that may affect the serotonergic neurotransmitter systems, such as tramadol or SSRIs (see WARNINGS).
