I am creating a map book but do not want the page numbers for each map page to be on the same side (since its printed double sided), I need the page numbers to be placed on opposite sides.
I am using data driven pages.
How do I do this?

I'm assuming the page numbers are pulled from the attribute table of the layer you are using to create the DDP and can therefore add a dynamic attribute.
If you have two text boxes one on each side for odd and even pages I think you should have two separate fields in the attribute table, one for odd the other even which would only display the text on the relevant pages as a blank field wouldn't display. Hopefully the image below makes that a bit clearer:
