Any medication can be addictive to a person who has that kind of personality. I think what you mean is do they make you dependent, the answer to that is NSAIDs are not drugs that cause dependent. They include diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxyn and many more.

NSAID pain meds do not cause dependence. Opioid medicines can cause dependence. Diclofenac is an NSAID and wont cause dependence. It depends on which pain meds you are talking about.

Narcotic painkillers like, Percocet, Vicodin, Oxycontin, Morphine, Demerol, etc are addictive. But pain medications like Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, etc. and not addictive.
