Welcome to the site. Usually clonidine and methacarbomal are the meds prescribed for opiate withdrawal. Clonidine is a blood pressure med that helps with anxiety, rls, restlessness and methacarbomal is a muscle relaxer prescribed to help with spasms, tummy cramps, and insomnia.

Sounds like a great med for opiate WD to me!! It works well for nausea, has a calming effect and will stop other tummy issues.
Best wishes!!
