Neither "stronger": These are approximately equipotent doses, and in such doses all opioids have similar effects on pain - where they differ is in their side effects. Oxymorphone (opana) is approximately 3 times more potent than oxycodone, if both are given by mouth. However, there are many individual differences, particularly dependent on liver function and genetic differences in metabolism-tables aren't accurate.
