    I've added Methadone to the list. I did not add >>>>>> as it's not a pain releiver, however, just FYI:

    Intravenous (IV)= >>>>>> is 3x as potent as Morphine.
    IntraMuscular(IM)= Herion is 2x as potent as Morphine.
    Orally= >>>>>> is 1.5x as potent.

    I might not always be right, but I'm never wrong.

    Hydros, unless you are a heavy addict or 10 out of 10 pain with soma this shouild be plenty. 4 to 6 day of each. Percocet is a "little" better" but a script each refill. Oyx, Are for big time addicts or terminally ill. Tramadol with soma works for some. Try that first. I am dowm to 10/325 noro and soma. I don't want to go back up the ladder to the stronger stuff again. Degnerative disc disease, 3 large bulged disk and almost byweekly new muscle tissue tears. I don't see the point telling newbees the chain of narcotics. Perhaps to sound important.

    Default oxcycone verses hydrocodone

    Hi hope I can help you.Both of these drugs are effective for mild to moderate pain with oxcycodone can be used for severe pain.So you get more bang for your buck with oxcycodone.Oxcycodone is the opiate used in the dreaded oxcycotin a long slow release of oxycodone.Hydrocodone is the narcotic used in vicodin something like codeine but codeine is slightly weaker.Causion with both of these narcotics are can be addictive.Please excuse my spelling if it is wrong at times.Alley
