There is something called the Thomas recipe for opiate withdrawal. You can google it. It is mostly a list of over the counter remedies but does include the use of a benzodiazepine such as valium which you would need a script for. The over the counter remedies will help with the symptoms of withdrawal. For sleep you can try melatonin or benadryl (diphenhydramine). For pain, you'll have to stick with tylenol or ibuprofen. You can take as much as 800mgs upto four times a day ibuprofen.
Hang in there. This is a rough row to hoe but you can do this. We are here to support you. Have you ever thought of investigating a medicine such as Suboxone or methadone?
