How do I take Trulicity (dulaglutide)?

Trulicity (dulaglutide) comes in an easy-to-use injection pen. Pick any day of the week that works best for you and make that your “Trulicity Day!” It’s as easy as uncapping the device, placing the pen on an injection site on your body and unlocking and pressing the auto injector button. After pressing to inject, hold it for 5-10 seconds until you hear the release click. You never see the needle!

Your doctor or pharmacist will help you decide what the best injection site will be for you. Typically this is your stomach, thigh or upper arm. You should change the injection site weekly – either choose a new area or rotate within the same spot. Once used, you can throw away the pen in a sharps disposal container. New pens should be stored in a refrigerator, away from light and in the original box.
