codeine is the absolute weakest opiate there is, you can't even compare 30mgs of codeine to 30mg of oxycodone, 30mgs of oxycodone its veryyyyy strong compared to codeine so be extremely careful, defenetly look a little more into this before taking anything.

methadoneman is kind of on the right track, though they can be compared if someone knows how to do the conversions.

However yes, the Oxycodone is much stronger than the Codeine.

If you have been taking 30mgs of Codeine, then you'd only require 3mgs of Oxycodone to be an equivalent dosage and the issue there is that there isn't any 3mg dosage of Oxycodone available by prescription in tablet form. The lowest available is 5mgs, so it would be a stronger dose, equivalent to about 50mgs of Codeine.

Really, you're looking at each 10mgs of Codeine being equal to just 1mg of Oxycodone.

Are there any other comments or questions?

Hi Verwon,

In your response, you stated that the lowest dosage of oxycodone available is 5 mg. Although this is correct in regard to straight, single-ingredient oxycodone products, a preparation containing 2.5 mg of oxycodone combined with 325 mg of acetaminophen is readily available. It is manufactured by Endo Pharmaceuticals under the Percocet 2.5/325 brand name, as well as by countless generic manufacturers.
