What is Oxymorphone prescribed for?
Oxymorphone is stronger:
Hello and welcome,
I am sorry you are having a great deal of pain.
The answer to your question is that oxymorphone, the new medication you were given, is exactly twice as strong as your old medicine oxycodone.
10 mg of oxymorphone is equivalent to 20 mg of oxycodone.
So with your new medication, you will need less pain medication to have the same or better effect.
I hope this information helps. Sending best wishes for your comfort.
