Data Entry Job – SCAM!

Fentanyl Side Efffect maybe?
Hello, are there any fentanyl users here who could chime in. My mother had a compression fracture from either osteoporosis or bone mets. Pain relief is the goal for her so after Ibuprofen didn't work the doctor gave her fentanyl patches 25 dose to start as she's very thin - 83 lbs. She applied the first one about 36 hours ago. She was a little drowsy this morning but seemed as I'd expect someone taking opiods for the first time to seem. I visited her this afternoon with my son. Son stayed with her and I went to get some groceries. When I got back she told me that she was walking into the kitchen (she's chair bound and was with my son in the living area the whole time) and she saw 2 cats having a great conversation (she has 1 cat). Is this the fentanyl? She's had a little dementia for some time, she will often mix morning and night or get her coat and umbrella to go to bed but she's never told me she observed 2 cats conversing! My son said she was drowsy while watching TV but never actually fell asleep so I'm not sure if this was a dream or a hallucination or..... I've had a bad back myself for years but have no experience with these type of meds.
Does anyone think this is a reaction to the fentanyl that resolves with time?Or is it completely abnormal and something I should call the dr about on Monday.
