Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Yes, cyclobenzaprine can affect conduction system of heart and worsen underlying cardiac conduction defect.
Since you are known case of right bundle branch block (RBBB), it is better not to take cyclobenzaprine as it would worsen your RBBB.
Better to talk with your doctor for alternative drug.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
