is more potent than Codeine
mg for mg. The same with Oxycodone
. Peoples preference for any of the above will depend on how it reacts to their system.
For example: For some people Codeine is quite strong. For others its a walk in the park. Some people can take it and some cant. same goes with Morphine
. the "Codones" were developed to try and combat the percentage of the masses whom cannot take other opiates
. Some people may have an adverse reaction to either morphine or Codeine but are able to take Oxycodone or Hydrocodone. Other people have a bad reaction to all opiates for some reason, either allergy or another reason. That is why tramadol
and other "non-opiate
-opiates" were developed, for the very same reason.
All in all it is whatever one is comfortable with. Some love Codeine, others think its a waste of time as compared to OxyCodone or Morphine or DiacetylMorphine
. It is really a personal preference thing.
ISWIMSHO Oxycodone or hydrocodone are both far better than Codeine.
