Trulicity ® (dulaglutide)
Trulicity® (dulaglutide): Information on the pen and how to use it
The dulaglutide pen comes with a user manual that describes the use step-by-step. Please read these instructions for use carefully and completely before using the pen. Please remember to unlock the pen when it has been placed against your skin.
The pen is a disposable, pre-filled delivery device that is ready to use. Each pen contains one weekly dose of dulaglutide (either 0.75 mg or 1.5 mg, respectively). Each pen delivers one dose only.1
When you press the green injection button, the pen will automatically insert the needle into your skin, inject the medicine, and pull back (retract) the needle after the injection is complete.1
How to use the pen
Step 1: Uncap1
Make sure the pen is locked.
Pull off and discard the grey base cap.
Do not put the base cap back on – this could damage the needle. Do not touch the needle. 1
Step 2: Place and unlock1
Place the clear base flat and firmly against your skin at the injection site.
Unlock by turning the lock ring.
Step 3: Press and hold1
Press and hold the green injection button; you will hear a loud click.
Continue holding the clear base firmly against your skin until you hear a second click. This occurs when the needle starts retracting in about 5-10 seconds.
Remove the pen from your skin.
You will know your injection is complete when the grey part is visible.1
Read the “Instructions for Use” for the pen carefully before using dulaglutide.2
