Hi hwmlge. I looked up the medication you asked about. The majority of the reviews were for treating sinusitis, not shingles. It's an anti biotic that is used to treat certain types of infections including skin infections and pneumonia.. I couldn't find any reviews for this medication and its' use for shingles. However, your doctor would know if your condition requires this medication. I would call your doctor and ask for another medication if this one doesn't seem to be helping. Good luck to you and hope you find relief soon.

Sounds weird that moxifloxacin helps in shingles.
U can benefit from pregabalon or gabapentine.
To treat shingles u can try acyclovir or valacyclovir.
Rest ur doc knows better.
