Hi aaronxdiver, From everything I've read, it is not addictive... but you should not have been on it for more than a week. It can cause stomach ulcers and bleeding, and it can also increase your risk of a heart attack or stroke. I would suggest getting off this medication as soon as possible. There must be something else your doctor should be willing to give you for pain, even if it's just a plain old Vicodin! Good Luck
