Answer

Muscle relaxants

These agents are thought to work centrally by suppressing conduction in the vestibular cerebellar pathways. They may have an inhibitory effect on the parasympathetic nervous system.

Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril)

Structurally similar to TCAs. Has anticholinergic and sedative adverse effects.
