Some pain medications are addictive, others are not.
Narcotic type pain meds called opiates are among the most commonly addictive and abused medications. A few examples of drugs in this category are codeine, oxycodone, morphine, Meperidine and hydrocodone. They are marketed under names like vicodin, oxycontin, demerol, (meperidine hydrochloride) dilaudid, etc. Non-narcotic pain meds & analgesics are typically not addictive.
