    Uh, depends. Dilaudid is short acting while Oxycontin is long acting.

    However, I believe that the 2mg of dilaudid would be considered "stronger"

    7.5mg of dilaudid is comparable to 30mg of oxycodone so some distance as being extra addictive oxy is mor addictive than hydromorphone merely the way the physique works I even have taken in the previous my returned operation one hundred micro grams an hour of the fentanyl discomfort patch with 4mg 4 circumstances an afternoon of hydromorphone to take the sting off because of the fact discomfort administration pronounced oxycodone isn't pronounced for severe returned discomfort and is extra addictive than an equivalent volume of oxcodone
