Methadone

Methadone is used for both actually but the reason why drs use it with chronic pain is because it has a half -life of half.lol. Take 50mg at 8am monday and 8am tuesday there are still 25mg in your body and also it builds and builds this is why alot of ppl take it and say well it dont work but its stronger than hydro and I do think that it is stronger than hydromorphone.

because of conflicting information.  Some places have oxycodone as 2.0 X as strong as hydrocodone, while others have it at 1.5 X as strong as hydrocodone.

awesome, like that chart!

 

 

1 question, or where is the Methadone (dolophine)? As it is still can be prescribed 4 pain as well. Several of my sources say that

Levomethadyl Acetate ,Buprenorphine & Methadone as different drugs.

Morphine

So morphine ain't that strong anyway. Maybe it isn't that good you've made this comparison.. people could use it in bad purposes.
