Cyclobenzeprine is a muscle relaxant. It can help reduce muscle spasm in the neck and shoulders in response to the migraine. It would be more helpful for the tension types of headaches but it might help a migraine, too, if a lot of neck and shoulder tension was involved. Cyclobenzeprine also causes profound sleepiness in some people and, for some, going to sleep is the best way to rid themselves of a migraine. If cyclobezeprine was taken daily, it might help reduce tension that could lead to migraine but cyclobenzeprine is not meant for long term use.
