generally no. You can never say "never" but to pass out (become comatose), you would have to have a true severe hypertensive crisis - we're talking > 240/>140 as a ballpark estimate.

That dose sounds awfully high as a starting dose! you're right - we usually start with the 1mg dose and build up, because the last thing you want is to get up in the middle of the night and fall to the ground because your blood pressure has plummeted from too high of a starting dose.
