There would be no difference at all, expect the company who manufactures the pills.

Rajive,

With your vast amount of knowledge, might you elaborate the answers you respond to with a little more information, as I personally would love to hear all that is in your brilliant head and LEARN?

I think that was a long question, my friend...

I agree 100% , The generic form of hydromorphone comes in many differant shapes and mgs. 2,4,8mgs also manufactured by many company's . The generic's are equvalent to the brand name knoll !

Ddog,
Just as a matter of your opinion, would u think it better for me to try oxymorphone IR in smaller doses or go back to the oxy's. Fentanyl doesn't do the job, I hate them, am becoming allergic to the glue and the only place they don't come off is plastered under my boobs.
I dunno what to do. Help!

I suggest you talk with your doctor, and ask him to prescribe the fentenyl in tablet form. ( problem solved )...
