I have been on the shot since December. At least once a month, I get these egg burps(Sulpher), horrible gas and diahrerea that last for 3 days. The 3 days of hell happens the next day after my shot.. Does anyone else have this? Doctor checked my gall bladder is fine.
Trulicity - Egg burps, gas stomach, pain and diahrerea?

My spouse has been on trulicity for about 6 months now, and absolutely has the burping/heartburn issue. Zofran did not help. His doctor didn't seem to think there was anything else to do--just deal with it or change meds. THe trulicity has been AMAZING for him otherwise (reduced insulin by 10 units/meal; reduced long active insulin by >50%, down 40lbs, hypertension improved to the point one medication reduced, etc).
Has anyone been offered any actual assistance with these side effects? I see some people got relief with baking soda water, gas-x/simethicone, and/or probiotics. Have any MDs or Pharmacists offered solid suggestions? Have any studies been done specifically to address the treatment of the side effects?
I started this beginning of October first two shots were fine just a little nausea loss of appetite. The third shot wow 24 hrs later terrible vomiting and then diarrhoea was so bad for three days, so I didn’t lake the next one left a week to get my body back to normal, took one a couple of days ago and 24hrs got eggy bumps and smelly farts, is it worth it I ask myself
Started Trulicity 9/10/2022 Today 9/11/2022 I’m having diarrhea, stomach pains, egg/sulfur burps on the .75 injection dose. No appetite. My husband made me eat bc I’m taking other meds n it wasn’t much but I feel like crap…..I don’t want to eat anymore EVER
Today I took my second injection. I have ALOT of gas going out of both directions that smell like a pogey plant. Horrible indigestion with mild heartburn. No diarrhea or abdominal pain, but am constipated. My vision gets blurry at times, but normalizes once I use my fast acting insulin. I check my levels, and my sugar would be around 150. It all depends what you eat/drink. Count carb intake, eliminate ALL sugars possible. Eat more greens and lean beef.
I was put on Trulicity and after I did my last dose (4) my diarrhea and stomach pain started going really bad. I broke out in hives. I've never had hives before and I don't like them. The symptoms for using this drug is exactly these things. My doctor took me off of this drug but it's taking a while for it to flush out of my system. This drug is hell on your system. I also felt really light headed, when I was standing to even get to the bathroom it was like I would almost fall down because I was so light headed. I am officially allergic to Trulicity.
I have been on Trulicity since November of last year. I started off on the .75mg dosage and now I am on the 1.5mg dosage. I have had problems with sulfur burps, diarrhea, gas pains and hemorrhoids since starting the medication. The hemorrhoids are from the diarrhea and bouts of constipation I get. I have found I cannot eat chicken, asparagus, brussel sprouts, green beans or any food with a higher sulfur content or I am screwed. I drink pepto like it is water. I have contacted my doctor to find out if there is anything that can be done for these side effects. Oh, and I also break out in giant welts at my injection site!
I do agree, the sulfur (egg) burbs are very bad. I agree drinking baking soda water helps. I have found if I overeat even in the slightest, I have stomach pain and nausea. Also, if I eat greasy foods. This medication is almost like having weight lose surgery without having it. Eating smaller meals help a lot. As long as you eat healthy and stay away from grease and excess sugar, and do not overeat, the side effects are very manageable.
Took 1st shot on a Monday
By Wednesday night I was sick
Almost a week later and I'm still sick
Nausea, egg burps, stomach hurts,
Feel awful!!! Let's just say I wont take this medicine again! This is absolutely horrible! How can they expect ppl to function like this! Hopefully this goes away soon.. dont know how much more I can take
My primary doctor put me on zofran and it really dont help! Just my luck!
Glad to see I'm not crazy and others have same symptoms
Cause I was about to go to emergency room
Yes. I just increased the dose and started with these symptoms. Is there any solution?
I started 3 days ago & I have the egg burping also & a little diarrhea. I also had a kidney transplant 4 years ago so I hope this is all the side effects. What can we do for the burping?
I’m so happy to have found this group. Same symptoms. Same problems.
One thing I’ve tried that seems to limit the negative side effects is probiotics. I figured if the gas smell is coming from incomplete digestion, why not throw more bacteria at the situation? Sort of like adding Riddex to a septic system… Not the complete solution but it helps…
I had the exact same thing happen to me. I took it at night and the next day I would be sick all day. By the 3rd shot it went away. They just upped the dose and it has happened again. Do you by chance have IBS?
It's such a relief to see these answers.
Hideous eggy burps
Loss of enjoyment with food
Still crave sugar
Has anyone found relief?
I tried it for 6 months to give it an honest try, after all the same symptoms as you plus vomiting. My stomach is still not the same. It's been one year since I started the 6 months
I started Trulicity 7 weeks ago. No problems first two weeks but each week since, horrible egg burps, hiccups, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Every week. No appetite, either. Lost 17 lbs so far, (which I need to do).
