In brief: Narcotic Withdrawal

Some signs of withdrawal are: - body aches - shaking - nausea/vomiting - insomnia - diarrhea getting over withdrawal there is a decrease in the intensity of their signs and symptoms.
To get over the symptoms nsaids like ibuprofen/motrin can help with body aches, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can help with insomnea and nausea. Immodium helps diarrhea. Your dr. Also help. Hospitalization sometimes is needed.
