The most potent opioid or narcotic drug is probably Fentanyl which is often used to treat breakthrough cancer pain. It has been described as 100 times more potent than morphine which is probably next, followed by oxycodone (oxycontin) (several times stronger than hydrocodone), hydrocodone and codeine.
