In brief: They are all similar

You are in an unfortunate position, 19 and already on major, major opiates.
Opiates only take the edge off. They do not relieve pain completely. They are just one tool in helping you make pain more manageable. Some days they work well enough, and some days you wonder why you bother taking them. Once these facts make sense, it will be easier to develop more tools for managing your pain.
