As an ex codeine addict its very important to me not to get addicted to another drug. I have been taking prescribe Tramadol 50mg 4 to 6 tablets a day for 10 days and have just done some reading on its addictive nature. If I stop today c/t will I be ok and in the clear? I dont want to develop another addiction to pain meds. Id rather be in pain as I know how bad withdrawal can get.

Since you were taking 200 to 300 mgs a day, you may experience some withdrawal. It would be best to taper off the tramadol thus avoiding any problems. Tramadol can be addictive and can cause seizures if stopped abruptly. You haven't been on it for long so you are probably ok, but to be safe I would reduce by 100mgs every three days, getting you off the tramadol in about the same amount of time you have been on it.
