Reviews for Dulaglutide
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Lucky for us in UK meds all free on the NHS. So have now been on Trulicity for 3 weeks. 1st week awful nausea with tummy ache. Appetite non existent. 2nd week similar but noticed nausea reduced, in fact comes and goes in bouts. Not too much bloating but gassy at times. Bloods down dramatically to 5.5_6.5. Reduced Gliclizide from 2 per day down to half tablet per day. 3rd week feeling much better with side effects reduced further again. Weight loss over 3 weeks average 10 pounds so very happy. Intend to stay on this for the long term with exercise my weight will come off quickly. Very happy with Trulicity and if you are lucky like me stay on it. Sorry for all of you who couldn't to stick with it."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I am supposed to begin Trulicity next week, but I am afraid because of the side effects and other risks, the pancreatitis in particular! Why is no one stating their race or ethnicity in these forums? Sometimes that makes a huge difference."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Day 1, after first injection I had bad diarrhea. Days 2-8, I felt worse than anything I have ever had. Sever nausea, bloating, horrible upper abdominal pain, fatigue, blurred vision, body aches. I lost 11 lbs in 8 days due to not being able to eat. I was taking everything I could for stomach relief (pepto bismol, tums, zantac, ginger root) but nothing helped at all. I swore I wouldn't take it again but I gave it the benefit of the doubt because I don't want to go on insulin. I took it again after 10 days and only had slight diarrhea on day 2, so I have continued it. Occasionally I still have a little nausea or slight fatigue/body ache, but I don't feel the urge to snack at all. I have not only kept off the 11 lbs but have lost 2 more. I'm only on my 3rd injection so I'm not sure how it has effected my A1C yet."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "The first day I injected Trulicity I was fine. I felt a little nauseous the next day but that night I could not sleep at all because I had the worst stomach pain and burps. I was running to the bathroom literally every half hour and I cannot even keep water down. I am so dehydrated now. I regret taking it as I am now exhausted from not being able to sleep. This medication is not worth it."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Instant head spins, nausea , chest pounding stomach cramping Felt very sick felt like stomach stopped working with bloating and cramping also constipated for 4 days Has been 7 days now body starting to function again Would not recommend Warning be VERY careful"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: " So happy to read everyones comments! Due to State insurance, I had to be taken off Victoza which worked great and made me feel great, and I was swapped on to nasty Trulicity! I has gas, bloating, diarrhea, and felt agitated and lethargic, fatigue!! Horrible! My numbers were out the the roof to 269!!!"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "This drug is great for type 2 diabetics who exercise and eat right daily. I'm currently on my second dose and have lost 20lbs in 3 weeks. I drank some tequila the third day after my injection and felt terrible. I experienced bad abdominal cramps tons of belching and diarrhea so that's why I gave it an 8.0 because while your on this medication you'll have to do right. I don't eat chips I eat trail mix and mostly high grain bread, fish and vegetables and I consume 70 plus oz of water a day so that's why this medication works for me. If you plan on eating what ever and drinking soda juice and alcohol I do not recommend this medication I have heard horror stories for those like this who took this medication. But if not get it immediately and feel great"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I took Trulicity for 2 weeks, I felt so nauseated that I had to call off work. The first 2 days I was fine, then I began to feel sick at my stomach and I was gassy & belching all the time. I had to stop after the 2nd injection. This is not for me..."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Been lucky, I guess. Trulicity has had the desired affect and the Dr is pleased after about 7 weeks 1 device misfired but the insurance Co. and manuf. all immediately helpful. No side effects to report , ever for 72 yo women Wish you all the same luck."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "The first week the nausea was awful and I also had stomach pains. Each week the nausea, present on day 2-3. Became less. My HbA1c have dropped from in the 8’s to 5.9 and I have lost approx 7 kilos. I will continue on this medication, can’t ignore these good results."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I took my 9th dose on June 30,2019. I hate the side effects, gassy, bloated and nausea! I went to the Dr 7/2 told him I felt awful, and he took me off of it! Thank God!"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I was very nauseous in the beginning and was throwing up quite a lot. I was not really upset because I had lost 15 pounds. Then three months later I started to lose my hair. When I took a shower and wash my hair so much came out. I stopped taking my trulicity today and unfortunately my doctor never called me back ."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "On 06/16/19 I took my first injection of Trulicity and for the first 2 days I felt good. My sugar levels were staying between 100-130. By morning of day 3 I was starting to feel nauseated. Then I was starting to belch up nasty taste in my mouth like a metal taste and it smelled like sewage. Then I started to get very bloated and gassy. I could not have bowel movements and could not release any gas out of my stomach. My stomach felt so hard and it was hurting me so bad. I had a very bad full feeling and I stopped eating by that Friday morning which was the 5th day and I was experiencing very bad indigestion. I took Gas X and Pepcid AC but no relief at all! I have gone on 4 days with no appetite and I’m getting concerned because of being a Type 2 diabetic. I really think this medication needs to be taken off the market. I have read too many bad reviews with people having the same symptoms. I will definitely NOT be taking this medication again or ever recommend it for anyone to take!!"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I am in the UK and the National Health System usually only prescribes it for patients over 31 BMI and I was under that. So had to make a case for trying Trulicity as I was reluctant to go onto insulin injections. I was originally on Metformin but experienced chronic diarrhea so the next step was Glicazide. This on it's own was not effective. I have just had my second injection of Trulicity, and no side effects at all. My Blood sugars went from 11 down to 6 the same day. I am not hungry all the time now so have three low carb meals, and 4 glicazide each day. I lost 2lbs on the first week. I discovered that towards the end of the week my bloods began to creep up but went right down once I took the second injection. I am on the lowest dose at the moment but the diabetic nurse specialist intends to up the dose after a month. Will see how that works out. As of this moment, I am very happy with Trulicity."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "My wife was on this mess for 2 weeks. On day 10 she was admitted into the hospital just about dead. It caused multiple issues. Simply unethical to even produce such harmful medications. BEWARE!!! This stuff can literally kill you in a very very very short amount of time."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I took this injection then read some reviews and smugly thought "oh these people must be exaggerating because I feel ok". Then two days after taking it, the trouble began. It's great for people who want to lose weight from vomiting and pooping their entire skeleton and organs out. I've never felt so ill. Worse thing is halfway through this week my sugar levels went higher than pre injection due to not eating or being able to keep down my other meds at all. Not one for me to try again."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Been on Trulicity for 2 weeks now. Zero side effects, slight elevation in fasting BGL, only to 7-8. Endocrinologist happy enough. Haven't noticed any significant change in appetite. Doctor says it is much better for preventing heart disease. I can't believe what some on here are paying, it's on our Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme and costs less than $40/month - but I am in Australia!"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I started using Trulicity on 6/11/19; immediately I saw impressive results with my glucose numbers. I also experienced a rapid decrease in appetite. I track my calories in very closely and I could barely get 700 calories a day for the first week. By day 5 I was vomiting with terrible stomach cramps in the early morning (5am). However, my glucose numbers remained 99-140 the entire first week. On 6/18 I took my second dose of Trulicity. The next day I could barely function my stomach was in so much pain. I have been nauseated just about every day since my initial intake. I haven't had a bowel movement in 13 days. And my stomach felt like a soda bottle shaken up and someone was slowly twisting off the cap. Today I called my doctor with my side effects and they want me off of Trulicity and back on slow acting Lantus."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Numbers going down, I have not yet had retest A1C yet. It burns a lot at injection site"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I've been taking the Trulicity for over a year, I started developing back pains and my belly seems to be getting bigger. I would go the the ER saying am I getting a stroke or heart attack? Another time I told them that it feels like my body is vibrating. Was in the ER twice in March 2019..had an endoscopy Dr said to stop using Trulicity, that it was affecting my pancreas. It has been almost 3 months and the body aches and pain ,including the breast have subsided. I was having anxiety, also gas and frequent stools...my body felt like it was being taken over with silicone, and poisoning my body."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Today is day 4 after I took trulicity along with Motivyst. I have never been so sick. Have severe nausea, vomiting, loose motions and energy levels are at an all time low. I stopped Motivyst and feel so much better already so I will see if I want to continue trulicity. I did loose 2 kgs in 4 days.. but that could be because of eating less and the multiple times I had to pee. Sugars maintained at 100-130 for the last 3 days ..but off Motivyst it's hovering around 170 random."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Avoid at all costs unless you want to feel very poorly! On 1st day of taking it i felt light headed. 2nd day I was puking up and had harsh abdominal pains. 3rd day I felt very bloated and was letting out burps that smelt like sewage. The bloating is causing me pains from my lower abdomen to my chest. Also got bad Diarrhea flushing out lots of water. I am on the 6th day after having my 1st injection and am still very bloated and in pain. Will not be taking Trulicity again!"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Very easy to use, minor side effects of diarrhea and gas but my blood sugars have stabilized. Also taking Synjardy. I’ve been on both for going on a month and a half. My out of pocket cost is high because of my deductible but I have no complaints about this medication"
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Took one dose of trulicity eight days ago. I’m still very sick to my stomach, and the fatigue is frightening. Needless to say no more for me. I will say it control my sugar very good, but definitely not worth it ."
Trulicity (dulaglutide) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I started Trulicity 6 months ago the drug works great but instead of losing weight I have gained over 13 pounds, has this happened to other patients???? I eat the same and exercise daily, I don't know what I can do to stop the weight gain, I have not been the heavy in years."
