To purchase Trulicity (dulaglutide) and the injectable pens required for four weeks would cost between £100-£150 per month.
The price would then increase incrementally the longer you use the medication. Trulicity is generally recommended as a long-term medication for type 2 diabetes. So, a year’s use could cost more than £1,000.
However, the cost of Trulicity will depend on where you’re purchasing it from and how long you intend to use the medication.
Trulicity is available on prescription in UK pharmacies if you’re eligible. You can also receive Trulicity on prescription from the NHS if you meet the criteria.
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 generally a more effective drug than Trulicity.
Wegovy results in more weight loss and improved blood sugar levels than Trulicity, with fewer side effects.
Where can you buy Trulicity?
You can purchase Trulicity online from registered and regulated clinics and pharmacies in the UK. You need a prescription to buy Trulicity, which you can get by completing a simple online form.
How do you qualify for a Trulicity prescription?
To receive a Trulicity prescription on the NHS, here are some of the criteria you need to meet:
- Be aged 18 or over
- Be living with type 2 diabetes
- Have poorly managed blood sugar levels
- Other criteria may be applied depending on the area of the NHS you’re in
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.
Second Nature’s Wegovy programme
Both programmes are science-backed and have been developed by dietitians, nutritionists, and psychologists. We’ve applied the same high standards of data security and patient safety as we have with our other weight-loss programmes that have been used by the NHS since 2017.
The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) also recently announced that Wegovy would be available via digital weight management services provided by Second Nature and three other companies supporting the NHS.
This approval recognises the high level of patient care and support that Second Nature has provided our members.
Additionally, we have over 6 years of clinical data showcasing our programme’s positive impact on weight loss and type 2 diabetes management.
