effect

  • Works for a long time by stimulating the release of insulin and inhibiting the release of glucagon.
  • Glucagon is a hormone that, like insulin, forms in the pancreas but has the opposite effect.
  • The agent also delays the absorption of glucose from the intestine.
  • This reduces the sugar content in the blood.
  • Also reduces body weight due to the influence of appetite regulation.
  • The half life in the blood (T?) is approximately 4.5 days.

Pharmaceutical forms

Solution for injection. 1 filled pen contains 0.75 mg or 1.5 mg dulaglutide.


Special warnings

Trulicity should be used with caution:
  • Contact your doctor for persistent stomach pain, which may be a symptom of acute inflammation of the pancreas.
  • If you have previously had acute inflammation of the pancreas.
  • In case of heart failure.
