A B vitamin complex with also a B 12 sublingual will help alot with energy. Also starting some light exercise will also help, try getting out for a short walk once a day, that will also help.

I had similiar experiences. Absolutely zero energy, bored, feeling like you should do something entertaining, but just not having the energy (mentally or physically) to find it enjoyable...

One thing that I think really helped me was a protein/amino acid/complex carbs/inulin/MCT/ and seed oils - that weight lifters use. It's easily digestible as a benefit considering the GI tract is usually impacted hard by opioids (or the absence thereof) Just as an example:

Like I said, I'm pretty sure it helped me a lot with getting some energy back - other people may have more to say if protein supplements are a good idea or not. I'm not a nutrition expert!
