Fentanyl's a hell of a drug

My wife is going to try to stop taking Fentanyl this weekend. She's been on it six months following a double mastectomy and reconstruction after a yearlong battle with stage 1 breast cancer (which she won). She is currently on a 25 mcg patch every 48 hours. After 24 hours withdrawal sets in and she's shivering and miserable for the next 24.

I have some cannabis for her, which I've read is helpful for opiate withdrawal symptoms. Any other tips for helping my darling bride get through through what promises to be a very rough 72 hours (and likely the following 72)?
