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.

Not a magic pill

Weight-loss injections are designed as additional tools for healthy lifestyle change and shouldn’t be considered as lifelong medications.

Instead, they should be used to help you kickstart your weight-loss journey whilst you focus on building new, healthy habits.

Consider the use of antidepressants for people living with depression. They’re not designed to cure the condition. Instead, they’re designed to allow room for therapy to treat the condition’s underlying cause.

Mounjaro and Wegovy are similar. These medications can help silence food-related thoughts and also give you a boost of confidence with more immediate weight-loss results.

This helps to buy you the time and headspace to understand why your body may have struggled to lose weight previously, and to build new long-term healthy habits.

The core focus of our medication programmes are to calm down the feeling of food noise, lower your cravings, and to allow you to build healthier habits to keep the weight off for good.

The ultimate goal is to make losing weight feel second nature.

Second Nature’s medication-supported programmes

Second Nature has two medication-supported programmes: a Wegovy weight-loss programme and a Mounjaro weight-loss programme.

If you’ve made the decision to try Wegovy or Mounjaro (assuming you’re eligible), why should you choose Second Nature over other medication providers?

For peace of mind.

Second Nature has worked with the NHS for over 6 years providing weight-loss programmes across the UK.

Whilst our Wegovy and Mounjaro weight-loss programmes are private and not currently used by the NHS, we’ve built the programmes with a focus on scientific evidence, patient safety, and data security.

We hope that our 6+ years of working with the NHS and building a track record of effective weight-loss results will give you peace of mind to give us a try.
