Yes, it can be addictive. It is a Schedule II controlled substance which is the highest level of potentially addictive substances that have legal medical uses. The only higher is the Schedule I drugs which are drugs like heroin which have no medical uses because they are too addictive or are just too dangerous to use medically.
