You can do anything: Mataxolone (skelaxin) and lorazepma (ativan) are both centrally acting medications with CNS depressant side effects. The answer to if you are able to take these two medications together lies in the hands of the prescribing physician. It may be or may not be a safe combination which only your doctor may answer for your own safety.

Fine: Taking those two together should be fine. I would ask your primary doctor though to be sure he/she is aware of the medications you are taking and for what is called "continuity of care." making sure your medical record is up to date is important and most emr's can check for any drug to drug interactions if future medications are prescribed as well. Good luck.
