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.
why is Oxycodone 15-20 ......why does it vary???
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.
Levomethadyl Acetate ,Buprenorphine & Methadone as different drugs.
(DONT GET ME WRONG, I AM NOT COMPLAINING, I LOVE THIS CHART, I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHERE THEY STAND IN THERE)
Well this blog is a real encyclopedia concerning drugs. I had a lot to learn here, these informations are very useful specially if we think about people fighting addiction.

Very informative drug comparison chart.
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.
People can use spoons for bad purposes too, but I still like to eat ice cream with them. What do you mean by "morphine aint that strong anyway"?
