At this stage, it’s important to provide accurate about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. We’ll also ask you to tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Trulicity. 

We will then determine your potential eligibility for Trulicity assistance and will handle the full application process for you. Once enrolled in the program, we’ll also request your Trulicity medication refills on your behalf for up to 12 months.

Is Prescription Care a Trulicity coupons provider?

Prescription Care is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Trulicity patient assistance program. That means that we are not a Trulicity coupons provider, a Trulicity discount card provider, or a Trulicity copay card provider. What we offer is a stress-free way to access the medications you need at an affordable price. This does not include printable Trulicity manufacturer coupons, Trulicity discounts, rebates, Trulicity savings cards, trial offers, or free Trulicity samples.

Can Prescription Care help me get Trulicity if I have insurance? 

If your insurance company won’t pay for your Trulicity medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, you may be eligible for the patient assistance program. This could even be the case if you don’t have insurance or your Medicare plan doesn’t cover Trulicity. Apply online with Prescription Care today to find out more.

What is Trulicity?

Trulicity is a medication prescribed to adults who have type 2 diabetes. It helps to:

  • Reduce blood sugar levels, when used alongside exercise and diet changes
  • Reduce the risk of serious heart problems, like strokes or heart attacks, in people with heart disease or who are at risk of heart problems

If you have type 2 diabetes, you may not produce enough insulin, or you may even become resistant to insulin. If this happens, you will absorb less sugar from your blood, resulting in your blood sugar levels remaining too high.

Trulicity can help you lower your blood sugar. It encourages your pancreas to secrete more insulin and reduces how much sugar is released into your blood. This can help to reduce your diabetes symptoms and the likelihood of developing other serious health conditions if taken alongside changes to your daily life like increased exercise and a healthier diet. Trulicity is usually taken once a week by injecting it under your skin using a pre-filled injection pen. 

Trulicity active ingredients

When you take Trulicity, the active ingredient dulaglutide is absorbed into your digestive system where it has two effects. It binds with areas on some of your cells called GLP1R receptors, which encourages your pancreas to make more insulin. This allows other cells in your body to more effectively remove sugar from your blood. At the same time, dulaglutide also reduces how much sugar your pancreas secretes into your blood. The combination of these two processes can reduce your blood sugar levels.

Trulicity side effects & Trulicity drug interactions

Common Trulicity side effects include:

  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Being sick (vomiting)
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal (stomach) pain
  • Reduced appetite 

Less common and rarer Trulicity side effects include:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Thyroid tumors and a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma
  • Inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis)
  • Kidney problems, including kidney failure
  • Hypoglycemia – your blood sugar falling too low – particularly when used with other medications like insulin or sulfonylurea
  • Severe stomach problems
  • Changes in your vision

If you take any of the below medications, they can interact with Trulicity and potentially impact its effectiveness. You should let your physician know about all other medications you take as this could even cause certain side effects to become more severe. 

  • Any other diabetes medications, like insulin or sulfonylureas
  • Other medications that can lower your blood sugar levels, like diuretics, corticosteroids, estrogens, oral contraceptives, nicotinic acid, and calcium channel blocking drugs
  • Any medications absorbed through your stomach, as Trulicity may increase the absorption of these drugs by keeping them in your stomach for longer
