Cyclobenzaprin is not indicated for use in shingles and I haven't seen it being used for shingles. However, seeing it's mode of action it does make sense to use it. I suppose if it works then it's great.
Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain.
Cyclobenzaprine is used together with rest and physical therapy to treat skeletal muscle conditions such as pain or injury.
