Trulicity ® (dulaglutide)
Trulicity® (dulaglutide): The pen cannot be recycled
Dispose of the used pen in a sharps container. Do not put dulaglutide pens in a recycle container.
The needle on the dulaglutide pen is permanently attached and cannot be taken off. Even though the needle retracts after the injection, the pen is considered a “sharps” because of the attached needle.1
The dulaglutide pen should be properly disposed of in a closable, puncture-resistant sharps container, even though there is no need to see or handle the needle.
DO NOT put used or unused dulaglutide pens in the household trash.
It is important to dispose of your sharps containers safely when they are full.
Any unused medicinal product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.2
