There is no data either way. Dr Agarwal is correct however.

In brief: Perhaps...

Individuals have unique susceptibilities based upon their unique addiction prone profiles.
Some will be particularly susceptible to fentanyl, while others will not. Genetic considerations are at work here. In other words, it's not about the drug, it's about the individual. If you can, stay away from either substance unless absolutely required for short term pain control. Good luck!
