No, I don't think he was worried about addiction. At that time it was going to be part of my pain management plan but just didn't work out for me. He then put me on valium but I didn't know thats what it was because my script said diazepam. I did get some relief from that but as soon as I found out what it was I stopped taking it. I've seen to many people addicted to that one and I wasn't getting enough benefit to justify the risk in my mind.
