Narc. You can remember this by remembering that narcotic drugs can produce stupor, and the technical name for "the bends", which produces stupor and pseudo-drunkenness, is nitrogen narcosis.

Coma goes way beyond "stupor", and anyway it's a word in itself, not a word root (or at least I've never heard it used as a combining form).
