hi

I understand your query.

If withdrawal symptoms are minor then no need to do anything it will subside soon but it is trouble some then need to start medicines as early as possible.
It can be treated with medicines but it depends upon type of withdrawal features.

Broadly low dose benzodiazapine will useful.

But you can consult any local physician if possible for further assistance.

Try to mange medicines as early as possible.

Still have a query then feel free to ask.

Thank you.
