I copied this from her journal..it looks pretty close to the other conversion charts I have seen..but again..I think it is difficult to compare 2 drugs with a different mechanism of action

not exactly..oxy in theory is a bit stronger than hydro..and sub is a different type of narcotic than the other 2..but conversoin charts do compare the strength of sub to other narcotics..but it is not really the effect they r comparing//but the strength...i do believe there is a conversion chart in avisg's journal...u can check it out there
