I saw Dr. Merifield 10 years ago after 2 years of chronic pain. He said it wasn't okay that I was on so much medicine and that I needed to be taken off. I was incredulous. He said the pills were having an opposite effect. He sent me to a pain therapist and slowly started tapering me off the...Read More
