Hi, Ferret! It's very likely. Tramadol is a very strong medication with the potential for dependency:
"Typically, it takes about 3-4 weeks of continuous use for someone to become tramadol dependent. The longer you take tramadol and the higher the dose, the more likely you are to develop a dependence."
If you're taking tramadol for chronic pain and these dosages have become ineffective you should notify your prescribing doctor ASAP.
