I have been on several narcotic pain relievers and have heard of many more. I'm interested if anyone knows which is the strongest one and which is the weakest, with rankings from Strongest to Weakest. Below is one ranking I read in a forum. If possible please make your own ranking of these medicines, adding in Fenanyl Patch, Methadone, and any other Narcotic Pain relievers I may have missed. Again, if possible, please rank them from strongest to weakest. Thank you for any information you are able to provide.
1) Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) 2) Oxymorhphone (Opana) 3) Oxycodone (Oxycontin) 4) Morphine (MScontin)

Hello, wow, looks like I missed a lot while I was sick. lol. I don't want it to appear as if I was scared away by some sort of rough responses to my question. Starting on New Years Day I got either food poison or the worst stomach virus of my life. I have been in a total "out of it" state since then and haven't been able to open my eyes much, let alone go online. Thanks for the information and know that as soon as I am fully recovered, I will be back and better than ever!! lol.
