Hey gm,

It would be easier to say what is the same about oxycodone and hydromorphone (Dilaudid). Both are narcotic, opiate based pain relievers for moderate to severe pain. The oxycodone can come as a formula mixed with acetominophen or ibuprofen where as the hydromorphone does not. The oxycodone comes in an extended release and immediate release formulas while the hydromorphone does not.

Hope this helps,

Laurie
