    Default Oxycodone vs. Methadone: Whats stronger?

    As the title says, which is stronger? I looked on one of those charts that calculates the does you'll need. That chart said 70 Mgs of methadone is equivalent to, i think, 170 mg(??) of oxycodone. I was just wanting to know what you all think.

    Thanks,
    Stonnewolf

    Methadone is going to be stronger and with a way longer half-life, but keep in mind that everybody's body reacts differently to meth. It's easy to get a toxic dose on meth and that point can vary from person to person dramatically based on more complex issues than simply tolerance. That's why OD's are more common with meth in an uncontrolled environment and also why the clinics gradually raise the dosage to get to the right maintenance dose.

    So 70 mg of methadone is equivalent to 170 mg of oxycodone?

    Personally I think oxycodone is stronger. The high is much higher if u get me. But yes Mdone definately has a longer half life and horrible w/d's.

    Those equivalence charts aren't exactly written in stone. There are a lot of other mitigating factors that need to be weighed in. Personal tolerance, unique physiology... ie - metabolism. Lots of stuff. Plus, you've got to remember 'done has a long half-life and it creeps up. That's why so many new users OD on it. They'll take X mg and they don't feel it so they take more and then maybe a little more. Next thing you know you're getting a cumulative effect and that could mean you're not breathing. I don't mean you in particular but Methadone is a weird drug and it's best to start small and keep it that way until you've got better acquainted with it's peculiarities. Good luck and stay safe.

    Maybe more euphoric, but I think that is probably what the original poster intended to ask.

    i believe methadone is more potent than oxycodone and as other posters said it can lead to many "easy" ODs because of the potency. Methadone isn't just like an OC. take to much and boom OD.

    Ive never had a personal experience with meth but from what i have read and heard, yes meth is stronger than oxycodone, but i do believe that oxycodone is more euphoric.

    hope this helps

    a few years back when I was just a recreational drug user I got a line on some methadone... had never wanted to try it but a buddy of mine told me it was good and gave me a few 40mg waffer... now at this point in my life I would pop 20mgs of OC, go out drinking, and have the time of my life... one night I was drinking with a friend and we each took around 25mg of the done and had a blast, I mean we got stupid - hitting on anything and everything that resembled the opposite sex.... next day was the worst fucking day of my life - I blacked out and the next day was full of vomiting and horrible pain...................



    guess the point is BE CAREFUL WITH THEM DONEIES IF ITS YOUR FIRST TIME!!! and fuck em' anyway the high off the OC's are way better and if you take dones for to long you won't get high off OC or H or anything for a few days - so whats the effin point>???

    I wish I would've read this post before I OD'ed on methadone years back. I had 4 "take home" doses at 80mg each. (someone sold them to me) I didn't know at the time how long Methadone took to kick in. I drank one, didn't feel anything, drank another one, didn't feel anything, blah, blah, blah I drank all 320mg and the next thing I know I'm having a near death experience, and I didn't see any white lights at the end of a tunnel. I went down! The absolute worst experience of my life, without question. I choked on my own vomit, my lungs filled with vomit, somebody found me lying on my back, blue faced with vomit everywhere... the "dream" I had was not good, NOT GOOD. There's a post describing it somewhere here in the archives.

    Anyway, my point is that Uncle Wiggly's post here could have saved me from that experience, had there been an Opiophile.org then. I would've known better then to swallow 320mg in an hour at a time when a few Vicodin would get me high.

    no doubt about it, mg to mg, methadone is stronger. Still, Id rather have 100mg of oxycodone than 100mg of methadone. Stronger doesnt mean better. Oxycodone is more fun. But 100mg of methadone is going to help you maintain way longer than 100mg of oxycodone.

    I'm prescribed 165mg oxycodone a day but I can get by on about 30-35mg methadone. Obviously not real high but feeling normal.

    werd... rather have some oxy for fun but when I'm out I'll go for done for stability and length of time that it helps for.

    Oxy is definately more fun if you are looking for a euphoric high while done is more for if you are outta EVERYTHING else and need to stay well..
