ARTHROTEC (diclofenac sodium/misoprostol) Tablets is a combination product containing diclofenac sodium, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic properties, and misoprostol, a gastrointestinal (GI) mucosal protective prostaglandin E1 analog.

Doesn't seem to be addictive but for more accurate info please speak to the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med.
