What is differences, similarities and which drug is stronger
Hydromorphone is 8-10 times more potent then morphine. Oxymorphone is about 6-8 times more potent then morphine. The differences in them is in the production of the drug. Hydromorphone is synthesized from morphine, and oxymorphone is synthesized from thebaine, which comes from a different part of the poppie plant. All in all, they act on the same receptors in the brain and besides the slight difference in strength, they are pretty much the same.
