I beg to differ on the MS-Contin Vs
. Oxycontin. Oxycontin is much stronger. Oxycodone
is the most active opiate orally, I think the yield is something like 70%, as opposed to morphine, which is about 40%. If you are slamming them, they are much closer, but just about every addict I have ever asked who has tried both drugs, orally and IV, says that OC's blow MS's away, in terms of the high. Pain patients are generally given OC's for more severe pain, or so I have heard/read.
