If you can take it, Clonodine is a great help with withdrawals. It's original purpose is to lower blood pressure. If given in a tiny dose (1mg) it increases the effects of narcotics, helps ease withdrawal and helps you sleep.
I went through the same thing with fentanyl. I could not sleep and had rls. I was given clonodine and I slept that night. I still had some restlessness during the day, but that didn't bother me. I did have to go back on the fentanyl as th epain was too abd, but I found an amazing amount of help in the clonodine.
