    SWIM is using heroin a lot more now than he is doing oxycodone. SWIM's tolerance is rising and he is curious to know what is the heroin to oxycodone equivalency if insulfated (snorted)? SWIM has tried using online opiate equivalency charts but those leave him more confused than having his question answered. What is the equivalency for .1 heroin powder (#3) to oxycodone? is .1 equivalent to 30mg of oxycodone? 60mg? Any answers would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Well, a rough comparison for SWIY according to an MD's opioid comparison chart is this: 5.0-6.7 mg of Oxycodone (80% bioavailability) is roughly equivalent to 2.3-5.2 mg pure diamorphine/diacetylmorphine/pure heroin taken as IV or IM (100% bioavailability). Hope that helps SWIY; and be safe. When it comes to conversion, it's safer to err on the side of caution with a more modest conversion option. Be well! :)

    - I'm REALLY bad at math, sounds like it is a little less than twice as strong? If I'm wrong, excuse my damaged brain. But that still doesn't really solve my problem, because I do not know how many milligrams of pure Pony are going to be in your average .1 stamp bag, or whatever...... This was actually the very topic I joined this board to find out about, and was going to post it this morning when I noticed someone else already had. Props to you, Whocaresdude, you beat me to the punch!

    - I take my OxyIR by IV, a small dose is 30mg, a good dose is 60mg, a great dose is 90mg. I'm sure I could do more, but it starts to get pricey. Anyway, I was wondering how much H I would need to be the equivalent of say, a 60mg dose. A dose that is strong, but not crazy strong. I know all Smack is cut differently, and varies in potency unlike the oxy, so just rough equivalency is all I'm looking for. Sounds like I would need roughly 30-40mgs of diamorphine/H to get a similar rush/buzz? So..... How much Smack would one need to procure to get a doseage of that size?

    FWIW i find that 1 oc80 is the same as 50mgs of methadone or about .3-.4 of good quality heroin.
