    Skelaxin (metaxalone) is currently available in a generic version. Generic Skelaxin (metaxalone) is manufactured and marketed under the name Metaxalone. Generic Skelaxin (metaxalone) currently holds an AB rating from the FDA, meaning that it is considered equivalent to brand-name Skelaxin (metaxalone) in every way. However, generic Skelaxin (metaxalone) may still have different inactive ingredients from brand-name Skelaxin (metaxalone). If you have allergies, you should keep this is mind.
