Fentanyl patches contain enough medication for three days, so even the smallest strength patch contains enough fentanyl (the 12 mcg/hr patch contains 1.28 mg of fentanyl) to kill a petite non-opioid tolerant person such as the victim. The higher strength patches would contain enough to kill several people, as the patches range in dosage of 12 mcg/hr, 25 mcg/hr, 50 mcg/hr, 75 mcg/hr and 100 mcg/hr. The most commonly prescribed dose is the 25 microgram per hour patch, which contains a total of 2,550 mcg, or 2.55 mg, of fentanyl; the median lethal dose (meaning a dose that would kill 50% of people given it) of fentanyl for non-opioid tolerant adults is 1 mg or 1,000 mcg; the maximum fatal dosage is 2 mg or 2,000 mcg. However the lethal dose of a drug can vary widely from person to person, it mainly depends on age and weight, a dose of fentanyl that would be lethal to a 30 year old, 300 pound man could potentially kill four 60 year old, 100 pound women.
