Trick Daddy Stops Taking Medication For His Lupus

Trick Daddy has decided to stop taking his medication to treat his Lupus. The rapper says the side effects are to much:

Rapper TRICK DADDY is refusing to undergo treatment as he battles autoimmune disease Lupus. The Miami, Florida native, real name Maurice Young, recently revealed he has been fighting the illness in secret for 12 years. He said during a radio interview, “I went to the doctor, like, 12 years ago. She took all kinds of tests, because I was trying to get rid of what we call dry skin; she did biopsies and blood tests and swab tests. She told me I have lupus.” But the Let’s Go star has now stopped taking medication to slow down the progression of the disease from drying out his skin to ravaging his inner organs – because he’s sick of all the side effects.

He tells, “I stopped taking any medicine that they was (sic) giving me, because for every medicine they gave me, I had to take a test or another medicine every 30 days or so to make sure that medicine wasn’t causing side effects – dealing with kidney or liver failure…I just said all together I ain’t (sic) taking no (sic) medicine.” But Trick Daddy refuses to reveal whether he’s quit smoking – an activity that can increase the outbreak of skin lesions associated with Lupus. When asked if he’s kicked his nicotine addiction, he replies, “We ain’t (sic) gon’ ask that question. Just pray for me. Help me help myself so we can help others.”

Dealing with medication and sickness is a battle all in itself. We are praying that Trick Daddy does what he needs to do to stay healthy. SMH

    I think I can understand how he feels some times the after effects is worse than the disease.

  • Bored @ Work

    I understand the side effects are a killer, but you shouldn’t just stop taking it. Trick should go back to the doctor, and try a different medication. Don’t give up bro, i’m rooting for you.
    Merning All!

    I will be praying for T Double D. Lupus is hard disease to battle. I know several people that have it.

    There’s no cure for lupus. It’s his decision.

  • Come on People

    You know it is easy for us to say just take the medicine. But only he knows what he can deal with. I had an aunt that would only take her medicine when she was sick. She did end up having kidney failure and she did eventually get tired of dealing with the ups and downs of the disease and died. She was on dialisys for a few years but by the time she recovered from one round of dialisys she had to go back. I can’t judge her and say that she was so wrong because only she knows the turmoil that she had to deal with every day.

    @ Come on People

    Amen to that. All we can do is pray my best friends mom has lupus it is a bad disease.

  • Glok9n: The real glok !!!



    I would pray for him but because he will not quit smoking then there is absolutely no point.

    Bottom line- smoking makes everything WORSE. Did Trick ever think about quitting the smoking which will 100% every single time ease some of the side effects?

    People who take chemo go thru hell TRICK! You can deal with it. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE the pain brutha. But it beats the alternative1

    FEEL ME?

    Not a good look Trick…You are absolutely going to die without the meds, if you have the more serious form of Lupus.

    OK here is your prayer. I pray that no sickness or disease be able to live in your body. I pray that you only eat or drink things that are natural and good for you. I pray that you feel no pain and experience divine healing ASAP. Amen

    I have lupus and I know what the side effects of the medicine do. I have had to have both hips and knees replaced and several hospitals stays you just have to take the good with the bad. I know I have times when I got tired of the 12 or 13 pills a day but it’s your decision if you want to go into kidney failure or anything else that lupus causes.
