graciesdad, the medication you are referring to is to prevent nausea and or vomiting. They may help her through withdrawals in that aspect. You might want to check out the suboxene/subutex sites on site you are on, just pull up suboxene and it will take you to the site you need. Remember, there are alternatives available as well.I am not a doctor and this is only my opinion based on experience. Good luck and hope you get the info you need. Julie

Hi graciesdad, Please check out Suboxone, pronounced sub-ox-own. If someone is very addicted to opiates this is a good medication to prevent opiate withdrawal. Yet suboxone is addictive too, so one must taper off of it slowly.
Wishing you the best,
