In brief: Think Gatorade

You'll need hydration and replacement of fluids due to either vomiting, sweating, or diarrhea.
Muscle cramps can be treated with calcium and magnesium supplements. If you are being supervised by a doctor, they can give you medication to treat these symptoms. If the symptoms are severe and you get very ill, go to an emergency room or call your doctor.

In brief: Everything

During opiate withdrawal before nutrients are brought up make sure you are under a physicians care.
A balanced diet is important at all times not only during opiate withdrawal.
