Is mobic, aciphex, (rabeprazole) flexeril, and a compounded cream with ketoprofen, baclofen,  lidocaine all together safe?

Which is stronger: hydromorphone HCl 8mg or oxycodone HCl 30mg or methadone 10mg?

Opiods for pain: Hydromorphone 8 mg is roughly equivalent to Oxycodone 30 mg. I assume you are asking re oral medications. Both of these are effective for moderate to severe pain.
