This question has also been asked and answered here: Is Tramadol Addictive?
Yes on both counts. It is an opoid that was previously thought to be NON addictive, but has proven otherwise and it also acts like an SSNRI, and that could be causing the mood swings. Please do NOT stop this medication suddenly if you have been on it a while or are at a high dose. Talk to your doctor is you are having problems on it, so you can safely be tapered off if you are having problems or think you are dependent on it.
