Trulicity is designed to fit into your busy life.

Trulicity is taken just once a week. You can take Trulicity any time during this day, with or without meals. So, start by picking the best day for you and mark it as your Trulicity Day.

Do your best to stick to the same day every week.

If you need to, you can easily switch Trulicity Days, but there must be 3 days* (72 hours) between doses. If it's been fewer than 3 days since your last dose, wait until the following week to take your dose on your new Trulicity Day.

*Do not take 2 doses of Trulicity within 3 days of each other.

How to use your Trulicity Pen

Each pen contains one dose with no need to measure or mix anything. With Trulicity, you don't have to handle or even see a needle. It works with a click of a button.*

1
Uncap the pen
2
Place and unlock
3
Press and hold

**Be sure to read the full Instructions for Use for more information on how to deliver your Trulicity dose.
