In brief: 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. In the US, Methadone is restricted to programs for treating opiod addiction, and is generally not used for pain relief.
