There's not really a good answer to that question. People respond differently to different medications so what is effective for one may not be as effective for someone else. And different medications are designed to target different kinds of pain. Although we think of opioids as being the strongest pain relievers, for some types of pain they don't work all that well. Also, the dosage prescribed plays into the equation. Ultimately your doctor is the best person to determine what might work best for you.
