For HCP

  • Trulicity® (dulaglutide) is available in four separate pens containing a single dose of either 0.75mg, 1.5mg, 3 mg or 4.5 mg for once weekly dosing.
  • The recommended initiating dose of TRULICITY is 0.75 mg subcutaneously once weekly. The dose may be increased to 1.5 mg once weekly for additional glycemic control. If additional glycemic control is needed, increase the dose to 3 mg once weekly after at least 4 weeks on the 1.5 mg dose. If additional glycemic control is needed, increase to the maximum dose of 4.5 mg once weekly after at least 4 weeks on the 3 mg dose.
  • There is no mixing or reconstitution required.
  • The pen is designed with a pre-attached hidden needle.
  • When using TRULICITY with insulin, administer as separate injections and never mix. It is acceptable to inject TRULICITY and insulin in the same body region, but the injections should not be adjacent to each other.

Storage and Handling:

  • Store TRULICITY in the refrigerator at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C).
  • If needed, each single-dose pen can be kept at room temperature, not to exceed 86°F (30°C) for a total of 14 days.
  • Do not freeze TRULICITY. Do not use TRULICITY if it has been frozen.
  • TRULICITY must be protected from light. Storage of TRULICITY in the original carton is recommended until time of administration.
  • Inspect TRULICITY visually before use. It should appear clear and colorless. Do not use TRULICITY if particulate matter or coloration is seen.
