You can buy Trulicity (dulaglutide) online in the UK from registered and regulated clinics and pharmacies, but you need a prescription and live with type 2 diabetes. You can get a prescription by filling out a simple online form.

However, if you’re looking for a GLP-1 medication to support weight loss, Trulicity may not be the best option.

Semaglutide (sold under the brand name Wegovy) is also available to purchase online with a prescription, and research has shown that semaglutide is a more effective drug than Trulicity.

Wegovy results in more weight loss and improved blood sugar levels than Trulicity, with fewer side effects.

Can Trulicity be prescribed online?

You can be prescribed Trulicity online if the provider is approved and registered, and you complete their online prescription application. But, you need to be living with type 2 diabetes.

If you don’t have type 2 diabetes, using Trulicity for weight loss would be considered an ‘off-label’ use of the medication.

Is it safe to order Trulicity online?

All online prescribers have to follow strict regulations in the UK to provide medications for delivery.

All pharmacies in Great Britain, including those providing internet services, must be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and meet their standards for registered pharmacies.

Prescribers may partner with providers like Second Nature to distribute their products. All partners must follow strict regulations and have sufficient insurance coverage to advertise and sell medication.

However, illegal websites do operate beyond these regulations; here are some tips to ensure you’re buying prescription medicines from reliable sources:

  • If you’re purchasing your medication through a prescriber’s partner, like Second Nature, make sure the prescribing pharmacy information is provided
  • Be wary of online pharmacies that offer prescription drugs without a prescription or at a significantly lower price than other pharmacies
  • Check if the online pharmacy is licensed and located in the United Kingdom
  • Make sure that the online pharmacy has a licensed pharmacist available to answer your questions

Should I buy Trulicity?

Deciding to start a new medication is a highly personal choice. So, ultimately, it depends on whether you believe it’s the best decision for your health going forward.

However, Trulicity isn’t as effective as other GLP-1 medications, like semaglutide (Wegovy). Wegovy can lead to significant weight loss and health improvements like lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels, with fewer side effects.

Ideally, we’d be able to lose weight without medication through improved eating habits and a healthier lifestyle.

However, many people have spent their entire lives struggling with weight, and their barriers to weight loss are multi-faceted and complex.

In these situations, extra support may be needed, which is why GLP-1 medications have been developed.

All medications come with risks and rewards, and not everyone is suitable for Wegovy, and Trulicity might be a better option. We’d recommend speaking with your doctor or local pharmacist for some advice.
