In brief: Dependence

Addictions imply you need more and more to get the same effects, and it doesn't work as before.
You may be dependent on it if you don't feel good without it, but are you still better on it than before you started it. Then it is still helping. Relapse off the med is not a sign of addiction. Talk to your md if you feel you need it but have side effects.
