Absolutely, hydrocodone is one of the weaker opiates/opioids out there. Oxycodone when taken by mouth is a little stronger then morphine which is about half way up the list of opiates by strength. Morphine is about 1.5 times stronger then oxycodone when administered every other way except by mouth..Hope that helps... Dave
