Trulicity - Overview
Trulicity is a medication used with diet and exercise to help improve blood sugar control in certain people with diabetes. People who need a Trulicity prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe a Trulicity pen when appropriate to do so.
How Does Trulicity Work?
How does Trulicity prescription medication work? Similar to exenatide (Bydureon, Byetta), liraglutide (Saxenda, Victoza), lixisenatide (Adlyxin), semaglutide (Ozempic, Rybelsus, Wegovy) and tirzepatide (Mounjaro) with a major difference being that it contains dulaglutide, Trulicity prescription medication is a GLP-1 agonist. Trulicity is used to help improve glycemic control in some adults with diabetes. Trulicity works by increasing the amount of intracellular cyclic AMP (cAMP) in pancreatic beta cells which helps increase insulin in response to glucose. Trulicty generally reaches a maximum plasma concentration within 72 hours and reaches a steady-state concentration in the plasma within 2-4 weeks. Comprised of amino acids, it is thought that the active ingredient in Trulicity is broken down in a way that is similar to other proteins. Trulicity and metformin (Glucophage) are generally not used together as Trulicity medication is often used as an alternative to that medication.

Some insurance plans may cover the cost of a Trulicity prescription as well.

Trulicity 0.75 mg once weekly is often the starting dose and can be increased to Trulicity 1.5 mg at the discretion of the medical provider. Trulicity pens are available as Trulicity 0.75 mg/0.5 mL solution in a single-dose pen and Trulicity 1.5 mg/0.5 mL solution in a single-dose pen.

Can I Buy Trulicity Online?
Trulicity requires a prescription from a medical provider to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. As a result, Trulicity OTC is not available and one cannot buy Trulicity online. Push Health can connect people who need a Trulicity prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Trulicity prescription medication, including Trulicity pens, when appropriate.
