What You Need To Know About Trulicity Coupons, Cost, and Patient Assistance Programs


Posted by Prescription Hope - See Editorial Guidelines (Last Updated On: Tue Apr 25 2023)

Is your Trulicity medication too expensive?

The average retail price of Trulicity costs over $800 for one carton containing 4 pens (one-month supply), even with a Trulicity coupon. This cost does not take into account your insurance coverage or the pharmacy costs. So, the price you pay may vary from other individuals.

Trulicity coupons may be available to many patients. However, a Trulicity coupon may only lower the amount you pay at the pharmacy slightly, and you can still end up paying too much.

Patients can get their Trulicy medication for $60.00 per month through Prescription Hope’s medication access service. Although Prescription Hope is not a Trulicity coupon or drug discount card, individuals looking for a Trulicity coupon can save more through Prescription Hope!

The four options you have to save money on Trulicity

There are four main ways to save money on out-of-pocket costs when it comes to prescription medication.

  1. Join a healthcare plan with prescription drug coverage (Please make sure the medication you are taking is in the insurance formulary.)
  2. Prescription drug discount cards
  3. Coupon cards that are directly for the pharmaceutical manufacturer
  4. Patient assistance programs, which are also directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer

Now that we have given you the four main medication savings programs, there are a few hurdles to go over in each of those areas. We will be quick about this…

When you join a health insurance program, you will have high deductibles, copays, and things of that nature.

When you have prescription drug discount cards, the discounts are uneven all across the board.

Coupons sponsored directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer specifically for brand-name medications are excellent in the short run. For the long term, there is a lot of money still left out of your pocket…

Last are the pharmaceutical manufacturer’s patient assistance programs that give medication at a reduced cost to individuals who qualify, which provides unmatched medication savings for the long term.

The downside to patient assistance programs is that the first shipment of medication takes, on average, 2 to 4 weeks to reach the patient. Also, managing medication orders and refills can be a daunting task, especially with the shipping times.

Do I qualify for Trulicity patient assistance programs?

Qualifying for Trulicity patient assistance programs is based on household income guidelines. Every patient assistance program uses different criteria for qualification, so we use the information below as general guidelines:

  • An individual earning up to $50,000 a year may qualify
  • Households of 2 individuals with a combined income up to $70,000 a year may qualify
  • Guidelines can increase in families making up to $200,000 per year

Prescription Hope suggests that anyone looking to save money on Trulicity submit an enrollment form.

Suppose you do not qualify to receive medication through patient assistance programs. In that case, we will never charge a service fee for that medication. Once you have been pre-qualified and your first charge has been paid but we find we can’t get your medication, you will be refunded any service fees paid for the medication.

Soon after submitting an enrollment form, we will determine whether you qualify to receive the medications you have requested for through patient assistance programs.

Suppose we find a program that will work for you. In that case, we will reach out to you for any additional information needed and reach out to your healthcare provider for the prescription.

Once we receive this information back, we immediately order your medication for you. After that, Prescription Hope works to manage medication orders, refill medications on time throughout the year, maintain up-to-date records, and renew your prescription medication’s enrollment every year.

Once all requested paperwork is received from you and your healthcare provider, your first order of medication is typically delivered within 2 to 4 weeks, we then continue to manage ongoing refills month after month. We will then place refills ahead of time so that you receive your medication on a regular schedule.

During the four to six week enrollment period, we recommend that you ask your healthcare provider if they could provide you with Trulicity samples while waiting for your first shipment.

Through our program, Americans save thousands every year from the retail cost of their prescription medications through Prescription Hope. To learn more about How Prescription Hope works you can visit our website.

What is Trulicity (dulaglutide)?

Trulicity (dulaglutide) is a prescription medication prescribed to adults with type 2 diabetes. Healthcare providers prescribed this medication to improve blood sugar (glucose) levels. Trulicity may also be used to reduce one’s risk of having cardiovascular events, such as heart attack or stroke, in individuals with heart disease and multiple cardiovascular risk factors.

Symptoms of diabetes and high blood sugar may include:

  • Thirst
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Blurry vision
  • Frequent urination
  • Weight loss
  • Slow-healing wounds/increased infections

Trulicity is considered to be a GLP-1 receptor agonist and is not insulin. Trulicity should be used along with diet and exercise to treat type 2 diabetes.

Other GLP-1 receptor agonists may include:

Trulicity works by stimulating the natural production of insulin, inhibiting the release of glucagon, and slowing digestion down. The combination of these three mechanisms can help improve blood sugar readings.

Trulicity can also help patients lose weight. Trulicity is not a weight-loss drug, but this effect is just an added benefit for some individuals.

Important safety information – warnings and precautions

Trulicity is not for people with type 1 diabetes.

Do not use Trulicity if you are allergic to dulaglutide or any of the other ingredients. This medication may contain inactive ingredients that can cause allergic reactions. Talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist about the details and ingredients in Trulicity.

Studies report that Trulicity may cause tumors in the thyroid, including thyroid cancer. Notify your healthcare provider if you have any symptoms, including a lump or swelling of the neck, trouble swallowing, hoarseness, or shortness of breath.

  • Do not use Trulicity if you have a family history of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC).
  • Do not use Trulicity if you have Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2).

Patients should limit their alcohol consumption while using this medication. Drinking alcohol can put you at an increased risk of hypoglycemic events.

A patient’s hormone and stress levels can also cause their blood sugar levels to fluctuate. Consult your healthcare provider on how these factors can require your treatment regimen, medications, and blood sugar monitoring to change.

Do not drive or operate machinery if you are experiencing extremely low or high blood sugar levels.

Dosage and administration

Trulicity comes in the form of a single-dose pen that gets injected once a week. The pens come in 4 different dose options so that Trulicity can fully meet your diabetes needs.

The steps for administrating Trulicity include:

  1. Uncapping the pen.
  2. Place the pen firmly against the injection site.
  3. Unlock the pen.
  4. Press down the green button fully, and you should hear a click.
  5. Keep holding down the button until you hear a second click.
  6. Once the injection is complete, you should be able to see the gray plunger in the pen.
  7. Dispose of your Trulicity pen appropriately.

Important aspects to know when administering Trulicity:

  • Keep the base cap on until you are ready to inject.
  • Wash and dry hands thoroughly before injecting.
  • Always check the pen to ensure it is the right medication and that it is not expired.
  • Inspect the medicine to ensure that it is clear with no particles in it and not cloudy.
  • Rotate your injection sites each injection. You can inject Trulicity into your upper arm, abdomen, or thigh.

What to do if you miss a dose:

If you forget to take your dose of Trulicity, then administer it as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is within 3 days of your next dose. Administer your next dose at the usual time. Never administer two doses at a time to “catch up,” as this can cause severe adverse reactions. Consult your healthcare provider for further questions.

Side effects of Trulicity

Trulicity can cause serious side effects in some patients. Talk to your healthcare provider about how to recognize serious side effects, such as:

  • Pancreatitis (inflamed pancreas): Stop using Trulicity right away and call your healthcare provider if you have severe pain in your stomach area (abdomen), with or without vomiting, that persists. Pain may be felt from your stomach area to your back.
  • Changes in vision: Notify your healthcare provider if you have changes in your vision while using Trulicity.
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar): Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar can include dizziness, confusion, drowsiness, headache, blurred vision, slurred speech, rapid heartbeat, sweating, hunger, shakiness, weakness, anxiety, and mood changes.
  • Serious allergic reactions: Seek medical attention immediately if you have signs of a serious allergic reaction, which may include swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat; difficulty breathing or swallowing; severe rash, fainting, or very fast heartbeat.
  • Acute kidney injury: Kidney problems can become worse in those with preexisting kidney issues. Diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting can lead to a loss of fluids (dehydration), worsening kidney problems.
  • Severe stomach problems

The most common side effects of Trulicity may include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain and decreased appetite, indigestion, and fatigue.

In clinical trials, nausea typically occurred in the first 2-3 days after the patient’s first dose. Nausea generally subsides after the first two weeks of using Trulicity.

Some tips that can help you manage your side effects include:

  • Eating smaller meals – try splitting your meals throughout the day
  • Stop eating when you feel full
  • Do not eat fried or fatty foods
  • Eating bland food, such as toast, crackers, or rice, may help

Before taking Trulicity

Before using Trulicity, talk to your healthcare provider about:

  • The history of your medical conditions, especially if you have or had problems with your pancreas, kidneys, liver, or stomach; diabetic retinopathy, or intestinal problems.
  • Whether or not you need to take other diabetes medications. This includes insulin or sulfonylureas.
  • Other medications you are taking, including other prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements. Certain drug interactions may be possible, causing an increased risk of adverse reactions.
  • Whether you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Trulicity should only be used during pregnancy if it is clearly needed.
    • Pregnancy can make controlling your diabetes more difficult. Talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to manage your blood sugar while you are pregnant.

Storage and disposal of Trulicity pen

Store your Trulicity pens in the refrigerator. Do not freeze the medication. Trulicity pens can be kept at room temperature for up to 14 days.

When you use Trulicity, you do not have to handle or see any needles. However, patients must dispose of the pen in a sharps container. If a sharps container is not available, you can use a puncture-resistant container with a secure lid, such as an empty laundry detergent bottle.

What drugs can affect Trulicity

Drug interactions can affect the way your prescription medications work or can increase your risk of adverse reactions. Therefore, it is crucial to talk to your healthcare provider about all the other medications you are taking, including vitamins and over-the-counter medicines.

Trulicity may be prescribed with other diabetes drugs. However, taking multiple glucose-lowering drugs can increase your risk of having hypoglycemic events if you are not careful. Here is a list of drugs that can increase your risk of low blood sugar when used with Trulicity:

If you are prescribed one of the drugs listed above along with Trulicity, then talk to your healthcare provider about possibly lowering your dose and monitor your blood sugar more carefully.

Some drugs can affect your blood sugar, making it harder for you to control your glucose levels. Always check your blood sugar as directed by your healthcare provider and notify them if you have high or low blood sugar symptoms.

Never start, stop, or change the dosage of any prescription medications unless directed by your healthcare provider.
