 1  Diabetes 2 I was admitted to the hospital for a total of 2 weeks. I was found by friends who called an ambulance. I was suffering from dehydration and unknown to me they were informed that I would have been dead in a few hours. The diarrhoea and retching had gone on since the Wednesday, 4 days. It was obvious that the doctors were unsure what had caused the problem. I was home for 3 weeks and then it all started again. Same symptoms. Back into hospital. In the end, I could see a pattern and my diabetes doctor happened to visit. I said it is the TRULICITY isn't it. I had worked it out myself. F 84

 5  weight loss, improve my lab work decrease in food cravings. Weight loss. Stomachache if I over eat. I usually eat several tiny meals spaced throughout the day since I've been on trulicity, but tonight I over ate and I feel it! my stomach feels like I ate a whole cow - and mind you I didn't eat as much as I use to. You really have to slow down and listen to your body when on this medication. Ive learned my lesson and hope to help others by sharing my experience. F 33 18 days

 1  Lower a1c agitation out of control anger, no energy, gas and diarrhea I stopped taking it after 2 weeks. My wife was screamed at because everything made me angry. Depression. My wife was going to call my regular Dr for help. Trulicity 2 week samples were given to me by my endocrinologist because I was told I may not tolerate it. M 71 0 weeks

 2  Type 2. Diabetes and weight loss I was really nauseous and had bad stomach pain for 2 weeks. I lost 20 lbs in 3 months. I have no energy at all. I have been sick for about 4 months with this nast cough and my oxygen down to 92. The past 3 times I have had hives, itching, my throat itched and the roof of my mouth itched too. I thought it was my allergies with pollen so high. I knew in a hour it was my Trulicity shot causing the reaction. I have also have had to be put on a third inhaler from it. I have a EPI Pen but I took 2 zyrtec and 2 benadryl, not at the same time. I hope no one else has these bad reactions but from what I am reading most of these reviews are negative. F 51 5 months

 5  Diabetes First week was awful with sharp colon pain, nausea, dizziness, diarrhea etc, this eased in the 2nd week and by the 3rd week all had settled. BUT I found you need to listen and understand your body. Don't think you can eat as you did before. Cut your carbs right down, lower sugar intake, drink plenty and make sure you eat fibre in fruit and veg. Keeping the colon moving along to stop the sharp pains and nausea certainly helped me. Feel great now. A very pleasant side effect of the drug is the amazing weird and extremely detailed dreams it gives you. I used to dream in black and white but now everything is vibrant colour and the detail is amazing. Love it !¸ F 50 8 weeks

 5  Diabetic At first as my A1c started to drop, I had the nausea and fatigue. I think it was because my body was recalibrating to a lower blood sugar. After a month symptoms subsided and isn't a problem. I have noticed if I am really hungry, it feels like stomach pain instead of hunger pain. It is working for me once my body got used to working at a normal blood glucose level. Fist time in 8 years my blood glucose is normal. People metabolize medication different, but it worked for me. 49 6 months

 4  Diabetes Type 2 First 2 weeks I had stomach upset and diarrhea. Did feel nauseous and dizzy during this time and for another month. Fatigue took the longest to subside. I sure like it better since my AIC is 6.5 and don't have to take insulin which I was on for 8 months when I first found out I had it. I am going to try and stick with it. I am happy that I can take a drug for this type 2 diabetes disease that is only once a week while I actively exercise and don't eat much. F 59 3 months

 1  Diabetes 2 Started on low dose and was fine. When dose was increased to 1.75, everything went wrong. Started with diarrhea followed by vomiting that lasted for days dehydrating me to the point of having to spend the night in the hospital. Still vomiting after coming home from hospital two days later. Make sure your doctor knows the risks of taking this drug. A doctor at my endocrinologist office (not my doctor who was out) said it was a virus and blew me off. He said that what I was going through doesn’t happen. F 58 5 weeks

 1  To lower my A1C I got through my first moth ok then landed in the hospital with acute pancreatitas. This drug lowered my A1C from 8.3 to 6.8 in a month but the side effects were too much to bare. Acid reflux, upset stomach, low sex drive, fatigue and finally hospitalization. I liked the drug because I could eat normal again but side effects just too uncomfortable. M 55 40 days

TRULICITY  (DULAGLUTIDE):  Dulaglutide is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Dulaglutide is similar to a natural hormone in your body (incretin). It works by causing insulin release in response to high blood sugar (such as after a meal) and by decreasing the amount of sugar your liver makes. Dulaglutide is not a substitute for insulin if you need insulin treatment.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
