Okay so there are numerous opiate conversion tables on the internet such as this one: http://www.globalrph.com/narcoticonv.htm These conversion charts have significant differences and conflicting information. For example one conversion chart may say Oxycodone:Morphine is a 1:1 ratio while others say its 1:2. Or one conversion may say Methadone:Oxycodone is 1:1 where other sites say its 1.5:1.
The purpose of this thread is to pool everyones own personal conversion ratios between opiates to gain a better understanding of the potency of certain narcotics compared to the potency of other narcotics. Also to provide as much information availiable on the internet for opiate conversion
*To make this more understandable a base dosage (in milligrams) of oxycodone for all other opiates to be compared to. Oxycodone is (in my opinion) the most widely used and understood opiate by BL'ers apart from Heroin. The starting base dose will be 10 milligrams. The route of administration is oral (PO). (If someone has any other suggestions i can change it.) If you have never done oxycodone or want to start with a different dose/drug that is ok too. You may include a range as well such as 10-15 milligrams.
**Lets limit this to only pharmaceuticals where potency will be consistant. Meaning 1mg of oxycodone is ALWAYS 1mg of oxycodone, whereas 1mg of street heroin can differ greatly from other street heroin of 1mg. The main goal is to try to make this as objective as possible while writing from a subjective view point, if that makes sense.
***All comparisons are assumed to be oral. If you compare something oral to something non-oral, for example, 10mg oxycodone ~ 1mg hydromorphone IV then you must state it.
****Remember this is you OWN OPINION, based on YOUR OWN EXPERIENCES WITH THE DRUG..and NOT based on what others have told you it is or from conversion ratios you have seen.
Dose / Drug Name / Route
- 10mg Oxycodone PO
- 6-8mg Hydrocodone PO
- 12.5-15mg Methadone PO
- 20-30mg Morphine PO
- 50-60mg Codeine PO
- .5-1mg Buperenorphine Sublingual
- 10mg Oxycodone Intranasal
