Oxycodone is a whole lot weaker than oxymorphone. Whereas oxycodone treats moderate to severe pain, oxymorphone's best use is for terminal cancer patients in severe, intolerable pain. There is a big difference 'tween the two. Please talk to your pharmacist or doctor for more information. I will say that they are both opium derivatives, but so is heroin. Watch out dude.
