    •  Box Warning

      Trulicity, a medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, comes with a boxed warning about the risk of thyroid C-cell tumors, including medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). This warning is a serious directive from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patients using Trulicity should be aware of the symptoms of thyroid tumors, such as a lump in the neck, difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath, or persistent hoarseness.

      The medication is contraindicated for individuals with a personal or family history of MTC and for those with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2). Additionally, patients who experience elevated serum calcitonin levels or have thyroid nodules detected should seek further evaluation from an endocrinologist.

      Apart from the thyroid tumor risk, Trulicity's use may be associated with other adverse effects. Pancreatitis has been reported in clinical trials, so patients are advised to watch for symptoms like severe abdominal pain. In case of suspected pancreatitis, the use of Trulicity should be discontinued promptly.

      What Is Trulicity?

      Trulicity is dulaglutide, which belongs to a class of medications that regulates blood sugar levels for type 2 diabetes. However, its off-label use is effective in helping people with obesity to lose a few more pounds than with diet and exercise. 

      Trulicity medication may also reduce the risk of heart problems like cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.

      How To Use Trulicity

      Trulicity is a liquid medication that comes prefilled in an injectable pen. It is injected at home once a week under the skin. It’s essential to inject it into a different spot each time.

      To keep your Trulicity levels consistent, take the injections on the same day and at the same time each week. You don’t have to take this medication with food.

      Never take a higher dosage of this medication than is prescribed by your doctor. Higher dosages will help you to lose more weight, but raising the dosage needs to be done slowly over time to make sure your body adjusts to the medication. 

      Keep the unused Trulicity injection pens stored in your refrigerator before use.

      Strengths & Dosages Of Trulicity

      There are different possible dosages, and your doctor will decide the best one for you. This may depend on specific health factors or how you respond to Trulicity medication. Usually, doctors begin patients on a low dosage of this medication. Then, over time, they will adjust the dosage until the proper dosage for the patient is found.

      Trulicity injection pens come in an injectable pen with either of two strengths: 

      • 0.75 mg of the dulaglutide in 0.5 mL of a solution
      • 1.5 mg of dulaglutide, which comes in 0.5 mL of a solution 

      The doctor will generally start new patients on the 0.75 mg dosage initially and may increase that later. Each of the pens contains just one dose. Take only what your doctor prescribes for you.

      After four or more weeks on this dosage, the doctor may increase the dosage to 3 mg. If it still isn’t working well, it may be increased to 4.5 mg after four weeks or longer of the 3 mg dosage. 

      When doctors prescribe Trulicity for its off-label weight loss use, the dosages are similar. It’s been found that the higher the dose, the more weight the patient loses. When taking 4.5 mg, patients can expect to lose about 10 pounds. This is the maximum dose that is prescribed.

      You can buy Trulicity online from Canada which will be the same Trulicity you would purchase from the United States. Meaning the dosages and strengths would not be different.

      How Does Trulicity Work?

      Dulaglutide, akin to the natural hormone incretin, prompts insulin release and reduces liver sugar release, while Trulicity pens bind to GLP-1 receptors in the pancreas, stimulating insulin secretion, lowering glucose levels, and reducing glucagon secretion. As a result, the medication prevents glycogen conversion to glucose and delays stomach emptying, aiding in weight loss by reducing food intake.

      Trulicity Side Effects

      Taking Trulicity for weight loss or type 2 diabetes may cause some side effects as any other medication. Your priority should be to consult with your doctor, adjust a dose, and report any adverse reactions you may have as soon as possible.

      Here are the most common side effects of Trulicity injection pens:

      • Nausea
      • Vomiting
      • Stomach pain
      • Diarrhea
      • Decreased appetite

      Digestive problems are one of the most common side effects. 31.6% to 41% of patients who take this medication experience mild issues.

      For many people, these side effects don’t last long. They may go away after a few days to a few weeks.

      Severe side effects of Trulicity medication include:

      Trulicity Drug Interactions

      Trulicity can react with several medications. It can significantly affect any medications that are taken by mouth. When you take an oral medication (such as Rybelsus), it goes into the stomach and the intestines, where it’s absorbed.

      When you take Trulicity, it dramatically slows down how long it takes for food to exit the stomach. When this happens, the oral medication sits in the stomach for a long time and isn’t absorbed as it should be. This can mean that your oral medications won’t be as effective when you take Trulicity.

      Certain drugs can interact negatively with Trulicity. These include albuterol, glipizide, glimepiride, levothyroxine, furosemide, and hydrochlorothiazide. Your doctor needs to know about all medications you take. This includes any herbal supplements, vitamins, and other nutritional supplements.

      Do not take Trulicity with other GLP-1 medications, such as Ozempic or Wegovy
