What is Trulicity Dulaglutide?

Trulicity is an antidiabetic dulaglutide diabetes injection medicine used in adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus to control the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Trulicity can be used as the only therapy when diet and exercise alone do not provide adequate control of blood glucose levels in patients who cannot take metformin (another anti-diabetic medicine). Trulicity can also be used as an adjunctive therapy in combination with other anti-diabetic medicines, including insulin, when these medicines, together with diet and exercise, do not provide adequate blood glucose control. Trulicity contains the active substance dulaglutide.

How does it work?

Used for a type of diabetes treatment, trulicity can limit the amount of sugar that enters the blood from the liver. It helps reduce the process of food passing from the stomach. It helps the pancreas release insulin in response to high blood sugar levels after meals.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Dulaglutide is indicated for the treatment of adults with DMT2, in the following situations:

  • In monotherapy: when exercise and diet do not allow adequately control blood glucose in patients for whom the use of MET is inappropriate due to intolerance or contraindications.
  • Combined with other antidiabetics, including insulin, when these, together with physical exercise and diet do not allow adequately control blood glucose.

How do I use it?

Trulicity can be administered at any time of the day with or without food. You must use it the same day every week if you can. To help you remember, you can write down the day of the week when you inject your first doses in the Trulicity box or on a calendar.

Trulicity is injected under the skin (subcutaneous injection) from the stomach area (abdomen) or into the upper leg (thigh). If someone else gives you the injection, you can do it on top from the arm. If you want, you can inject yourself into the same area of your body every week. But in this case, make sure to choose different injection sites within the same area.

It is important that you monitor your blood sugar levels as directed by your doctor, pharmacist, or nurse if you are taking Trulicity together with a sulfonylurea or insulin.

Its dosage.

Trulicity is available in pre-filled pens (0.75 mg and 1.5 mg) containing a solution for subcutaneous injection. The medicine can only be obtained with a prescription. Patients self-administer the medicine (after being properly trained) subcutaneously in the abdomen or thigh. The recommended dose is 0.75 mg once a week if the medicine is used as monotherapy and 1.5 mg once a week if it is used as a combination therapy (although your doctor may start with the lowest dose in potentially more at risk patients, such as people over 75 years of age). If the medicine is used in combination with a type of antidiabetic medicine called sulphonylurea or with insulin, it may be necessary to reduce the dose of sulfonylurea or insulin to avoid hypoglycemia (low blood glucose concentration).

Side effects & precautions

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not all people suffer them.

Rare allergic reactions (may affect up to 1 in 1,000 people) have been reported (anaphylactic reactions).

See your doctor immediately if you experience symptoms such as:

  • Hives, itching and rapid swelling of the tissues of the neck, face, mouth or throat
  • Hives and shortness of breath

Very common side effects with dulaglutide that may affect more than 1 in 10 people who used this medicine are:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)

These side effects are usually not serious. They are more frequent when you start using dulaglutide, but decrease over time in most patients.

Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is very common when dulaglutide is used together with other medicines containing metformin, a sulfonylurea and / or insulin. If you are taking sulfonylurea or insulin, you may need to have your dose reduced while using dulaglutide. Hypoglycemia is common (may affect up to 1 in 10 people using this medicine) when dulaglutide is used alone, or with metformin and pioglitazone together, or with an inhibitor of type 2 sodium glucose glucose transporter (iSGLT2) with or without metformin.
