In brief: Opiate W/D
If withdrawal is naturally-occurring, the physician may choose to manage the patient with either opioid or non-opioid adjunctive medication.
Methadone 10 mg im or 20 mg PO is usually adequate to relieve symptoms of withdrawal without producing intoxication. Adjunctive medications include clonidine, antiemetics, benzodiazepines, and antidiarrheals. These should be used alone for iatrogenic w/d.

In brief: Antiemetics
Stomach pains during withdrawal, along with nausea are best treated with anti emetics.
One well known and best tolerated is zofran (ondansetron).
