1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

There are no fda ratings on this drug so i cannot say if it is safe or not.

In brief: Lack of data

There is no data to confirm the safety of skelaxin (metaxalone) in pregnant or nursing mothers.
It is unknown if it is excreted in breast milk or crosses the placenta. Pfizer the manufacturer recommends against both. http://labeling.pfizer.com/showlabeling.aspx?id=689.
