One is Oxycodone the other is Morphine Sulfate.

Balbanese is incorrect. Hydromorphone is a synthetic analog. It is NOT morphine sulfate. Hydromorphone is the generic name of the drug as it is also known under the Brand Name as "Dilaudid".

I stand corrected.

Hydromorphone is about twice as strong as oxycontin. It is derived from morphine and oxycodone is synthesized from thebaine(related to morphine).
