This would be very unlikely. But let me look through the research.

No. Fentanyl half-life is only 3.5 hrs and can not cause a coma, especially at that low dose.

I hope this helps!

I CAN'T TAKE MORPHINE OR OXYCODONE IT INFECT MY BREEDING. INFENTANYL IS STONGER THAN MORPHINE OR OXYCODONE. AT THE HOSPITAL THEY SAID MY LUNG COLLASPED.

This is Dr. David

I see you have asked for another expert.

fentanyl is a very concentrated opiate similar to morphine and oxycodone,

a very small amount is often used to help decrease pain

fentanyl can suppress your breathing and can cause you to go into a sleep.

it is sometimes used along with another medications to help decrease pain and put patients to sleep for surgery.

it is used for cancer patients who have bad pain as well

did you get the fentanyl by a patch or through your vein?
