They are both opiates, if that's what you mean. You can get physically and mentally hooked on either one, but I think the chances of becoming mentally dependent are greater with Oxy than with the Fentanyl patch. But I'm not sure of that. Fentanyl is also a stronger opiate than Oxy and some people say it kills their pain better, while others don't. And I don't think the Doc's actually know why this is. Everyone is different.
