Let’s Talk Trulicity: Getting Started on Trulicity
Select Safety Information
Trulicity may cause serious side effects. In people who have kidney problems, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting may cause a loss of fluids (dehydration). This may cause kidney problems to get worse or kidney failure.
Choose your Trulicity Day
The first step when you're starting Trulicity is to choose a day of the week to take your dose. This will be your Trulicity Day.
It's a good idea to pick a day of the week with a recurring event that's always a part of your weekly routine—anything from Movie Monday to Salad Sunday or even your weekly bowling night.
To remember to take Trulicity on your Trulicity Day, try marking your personal calendar, setting a weekly alarm on your cell phone, or putting a reminder note on your refrigerator.
You can also set weekly reminder messages to take Trulicity on your Trulicity Day with the Trulicity App™.
Change your Trulicity Day
It’s helpful to choose a Trulicity Day that fits in with your schedule, but schedules change—and that’s okay. If you’d like to change your Trulicity Day, you can. Just choose the day of the week you want to be your new Trulicity Day. Then figure out when to take your next dose. If it’s been more than 3 days since your last dose, you’re all set. If it’s been fewer than 3 days since your last dose, wait until your new Trulicity Day comes along the following week. Then take your dose. Do not take 2 doses of Trulicity within 3 days of each other.What to do if you miss a dose
