How long is it safe to take Metaxalone?

Metaxalone: There is no limit in the literature as to how long one can take this medicine. There are side effects of course, some minor, some more serious including liver issues. It states you have chronic pain - do you have a pain doctor who can follow your symptoms and help you decrease the use of it?
