Trulicity Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC)
Treatment with dulaglutide was associated with a small increase in heart rate compared with baseline.
integrated analysis showed that treatment with dulaglutide 1.5 mg and
dulaglutide 0.75 mg resulted in a mean increase in HR of 2 to 4 bpm.1
trial data, based on the evaluation of the full duration of phase 2
and phase 3 clinical studies, identified sinus tachycardia as being
commonly reported by patients who were treated with dualglutide,
the phase 2 study of patients with T2DM with or without hypertension,
both dulaglutide doses increased HR at 4,16, and 26 weeks.2
0.75 mg demonstrated noninferiority to placebo in LSM changes from
baseline in HR at 4,16, and 26 weeks (p≤.02 for both) but
dulaglutide 1.5 mg did not show noninferiority (Table
