Re: Which is stronger?

Drugs are usually compared to Morphine. Because Morphine is the gold standard to which others are compared. The latest that I read, was that Mg to Mg Hydroccodone and Morphine are approximately the same. I have not seen an Equianalgesic chart with Hydrocodone to Oxycodone (Percocet), but I can tell you what Oxycodone (Percocet) to Morphine is. On the Equianalgesic chart 22.5 mg of Oxycodone would be the same as 45 mg to morphine (therapeutically equivalent). However, everyone responds different to opiates. you may find that the Hydrocodone works better, some do. But I think the Percocet is stronger if you are looking at an Equianalgesic Chart.

Re: Which is stronger?

Here is a link to a good description / comparison and is consistent with my personal experience. It's roughly identical. (i.e., the table shows 20:30 - so if you scale it that's proportional to 5:7.5 )


Hope that helps. You can also search for +"equianalgesic dose" and find other references.
