Yes: Any controlled substance, in this case a narcotic, also known as an opiate or more simply a pain med can become addictive and cause you to develop a tolerance and when not available cause a withdrawal. The best thing to do is only use pain meds when you have pain and try to use the least amount and pain meds that do not have narcotics, if possible.
