I was under the impression that thismedication was not addicting. If ever there was a falacy it is that Tramadol is not addicting. Any help that anyone can give me as I taper down, would be greatly appreciated. I am quite frightened and realize that I am an addict. I started taking the medication for knee pain and my doctor just kept filling the scripts and I've noticed the past couple or so months that I need more and more. Please help. I am on 200 mgs.
