In brief: Ends on the person

dihydrocodeine is reported to be 1 1/2 times stronger but it varies with each person In the US dihydro is classified as a DEA II while codeine is a DEA III Each person metabolizes it differently If you are having pain and truly need a pain medication go to your doctor These are dangerous drugs
