Trulicity How to Take

Trulicity (Dulaglutide) belongs to a group of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It is used along with other medications to improve blood glucose (sugar) levels for people with Type 2 Diabetes. Trulicity (Dulaglutide) may also be used alone when Metformin cannot be used or is not tolerated. It works by helping your body make more insulin and control blood glucose levels. Trulicity (Dulaglutide) should be used as part of an overall diabetes management plan that includes a diet and exercise program.

Trulicity (Dulaglutide) is not a substitute for insulin. However, it may be used at the same time as insulin.

Trulicity (Dulaglutide) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Trulicity (Dulaglutide) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Trulicity (Dulaglutide) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Trulicity (Dulaglutide) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Trulicity (Dulaglutide), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Trulicity (Dulaglutide) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Trulicity (Dulaglutide) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Trulicity (Dulaglutide) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Your doctor or diabetes educator will show you how to inject Trulicity (Dulaglutide).

If you are also using insulin, each medication should be injected separately. Trulicity (Dulaglutide) should be clear and colourless. Do not use Trulicity (Dulaglutide) if you notice anything unusual in the appearance of the solution, such as cloudiness, discolouration, or clumping.
