In brief: See your doctor!
Opiate withdrawal should be overseen by your doctor, who will help you tailor medications to your specific situation.
It is not possible to say what medication or dose should be used by any individual. The answer depends on what kind of opiate you have been taking, in what dose, and for what reason. Your underlying state of health is also important. See your doctor, and best wishes for success.

In brief: In opioid withdrawl?
If you are asking about treating the symptoms of withdrawl then valium and clonidine.
If you are asking about managing pain in someone who is now in withdrawl i would suggest getting them back on their pain medication.
