Trulicity (dulaglutide) is an injectable medicine prescribed to treat Type 2 Diabetes, in conjunction with diet and exercise. Trulicity is not insulin; instead, it works by acting like a specific hormone in the body (GLP-1) which naturally lowers the body’s blood sugar.
Although there are a variety of Diabetes drugs, and physicians have many options available for prescriptions, almost all of those drugs are expensive. In the past decade, the cost of diabetic medications in general keeps rising. When patients factor in the costs of syringes, glucose testing strips, and sharps containers, diabetic prescriptions add up quickly. A month’s supply of Trulicity alone can cost uninsured patients nearly $500.
To begin getting some relief, consumers can compare prices and start saving money at the pharmacy with a Trulicity coupon.
