Brief Answer:
7.5 mg of oxycodone

Detailed Answer:

Hi, I have gone through your question.


and I understand your concerns but hydromorphone is a more potent analgesic than oxycodone.. 1mg of hydromorphone is equivalent to 2.67 mg of oxycodone.. This means that a 2mg dose of hydromorphone is equivalent to 5.34 mg of oxycodone.. This means that a 7.5 mg of oxycodone will provide a more powerful effect than a 2 mg of hydromorphone.. I hope I answered your question. if you don't have any other clarifications then please close the discussion..

Hope this answers your query.
