Use Trulicity exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.
Trulicity is injected under the skin once per week. Use this medicine on the same day each week at the same time of day. If you change your dosing day, allow at least 3 days to pass between doses.
You may use this medicine with or without food.
Read and carefully follow any Instructions for Use provided with your medicine. Do not use Trulicity if you don't understand all instructions for proper use. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions.
Your care provider will show you where to on your body to inject Trulicity. Use a different place each time you give an injection. Do not inject into the same place two times in a row.
Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can happen to everyone who has diabetes. Symptoms include headache, hunger, sweating, irritability, dizziness, nausea, fast heart rate, and feeling anxious or shaky. To quickly treat low blood sugar, always keep a fast-acting source of sugar with you such as fruit juice, hard candy, crackers, raisins, or non-diet soda.
Your doctor can prescribe a glucagon emergency injection kit to use in case you have severe hypoglycemia and cannot eat or drink. Be sure your family and close friends know how to give you this injection in an emergency.
Also watch for signs of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) such as increased thirst or urination, blurred vision, headache, and tiredness.
Blood sugar levels can be affected by stress, illness, surgery, exercise, alcohol use, or skipping meals. Ask your doctor before changing your dose or medication schedule.
Each injection pen or prefilled syringe is for one use only. Throw away after one use, even if there is still medicine left inside. Use a puncture-proof "sharps" container. Follow state or local laws about how to dispose of this container. Keep it out of the reach of children and pets.
Store Trulicity Pens in the refrigerator, protected from light. Do not use past the expiration date on the medicine label. Do not freeze this medicine, and throw away the medicine if it has become frozen.
You may also store Trulicity Pens at room temperature for up to 14 days before use.
