Oxycontin is slow release oxycodone right?
Milligram for milligram oxycodone is stronger than morphine when taken orally but has a shorter half-life. The slow release factor will complicate calculation, as will the poor oral absorption of morphine, but maybe oxycodone 1.5- 2mg = morphine 3mg. And of course morphine is more constipating than oxycodone, especially when taken orally. I find oxycodone more fuzzy or something.
