There’s no way around it; Trulicity is a very expensive medication that is needed by millions of people in the United States of America. Some people simply can’t afford it, take out loans, second mortgages, and borrow money from their friends and families. Even with a discount coupon or co-pay card from the manufacturer, uninsured and under-insured people will often have to pay over $600 per 1 carton (4pens) of Trulicity 1.5mg/0.5ml. Without any Trulicity coupon card or copay-car and without insurance, the cost of Trulicity can rise to over $800. This is simply not affordable for many low-to-moderate income Americans. This is why we founded The Rx Solution; we believe that everyone deserves the right to affordable medication, regardless of how much money they make or their insurance status.
What is Trulicity?
Trulicity – also known as dulaglutide – is a medication used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes that can be used once weekly. Dulaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 agonist). GLP-1 is a hormone that is involved in the normalization of levels of glucose in the blood. Trulicity often gets confused with insulin since it is an injection. Trulicity is not insulin. Rather, it helps assist your body in its own insulin production.
Trulicity works by:
- It helps you slow down how quickly food leaves your stomach
- It helps your pancreas release insulin in response to high levels of sugar in your blood after you eat
- It can limit how much sugar gets into your blood from your liver
What Are the Side Effects of Trulicity
Some individuals may experience nausea after starting Trulicity. In studies, 8% – 29% of people using Trulicity experienced varying levels of nausea, which typically occurred during the first 2-4 days after they took their first dose. The majority of people stopped experiencing this nausea after the first 2 weeks, while a few did not. Less than 2% of patients had to stop taking Trulicity due to their symptoms of nausea. There are a few common gastrointestinal side effects of Trulicity, such as abdominal pain, farts, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, and decreased appetite.
If you find yourself experiencing any of these side effects, follows these helpful tips and call your doctor:
- Try eating bland foods such as rice, bread, or crackers
- Choose food or drinks that contain ginger.
- Stop eating when you feel full
- Avoid fried or fatty foods. Try to stop eating as much processed food and processed sugar
- Eat smaller meals. Try 3-4 meals a day and see how that works
