Male infertility Methadone and clomid

I am on a relatively low doee of methadone. Currently 30 to 40 mgs a day of methadone for severe pain. After semen analysis, results show I have low sperm motility. My sperm count is 179 million but only 1 ml of seminal volume so the volume is low too. I am tapering off methadone but I absolutely need it for pain for arthritis. I am not on any other meds. We have a 5 year old and have been trying for our 2nd for about 1 year now. I know the methadone has killed my sex drive/testosterone and semen volume. Tapering will take a few months and even then, not sure what to do about the pain mngt as surgery is not an option. Has anyone had success using clomid or does anyone have any other ideas to help us? Any information would be greatly appreciated. My goal is to increase my testosterone and sperm volume/motility so we can get pregnant. Thank you!!
