Are you asking because you want to hurt yourself? Please don't, if so, you'll change your mind too late, and your family will suffer forever. Call 911 or a crisis line if you are thinking about hurting yourself.

Unknown: I am not aware of any case reports of deaths from only metaxalone. In general, muscle relaxants like Metaxalone can cause sedation which can, when combined with other medications, result in respiratory depression and death. As with all medications, they should be taken as prescribed and any questions you should address with the treating healthcare provider.
