What is Trulicity (Dulaglutide)?
Trulicity is an injectable solution containing dulaglutide. It is used to help patients with type 2 diabetes moderate their blood sugar levels. The medication is a clear colorless solution that is administered via subcutaneous injection (under the skin) once a week. The recommended initial dose is 0.75mg, but this can be increased to 1.5mg if necessary.
What is it used for?
Trulicity belongs to a class of medications called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonists. These medicines work to lower blood glucose levels in several ways. For this reason, Trulicity is used, along with diet and exercise, to treat type 2 diabetes. This medication is usually given when other diabetes medications are no longer providing adequate glycemic control. Trulicity facilitates the release of elevated amounts of insulin by the pancreas when blood sugar levels are high. Furthermore, Trulicity controls blood sugar levels by increasing the amount of time it takes for food to leave the stomach and reducing the amount of sugar getting into the blood from the liver.
Why use this medication?
With Trulicity, the patient gets the convenience of a once-weekly dose schedule coupled with the ease of use that comes with an ergonomically designed pen. Trulicity can be taken at any time of the day, with or without food.Click to read more Click to read less
