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.

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. 

The two most popular alternatives are Wegovy and Mounjaro, which are both available in the UK for weight loss.

Wegovy is the same medication as Ozempic (the drug is called ‘semaglutide’), but it’s available in higher doses and it’s also specifically approved for weight loss.

Mounjaro (the drug is called ‘tirzepatide’) is the brand new weight-loss medication from the pharmaceutical company, Eli Lilly. It was launched in February 2024 and clinical trials have suggested better long-term weight-loss results than both Wegovy and Ozempic.

Both Mounjaro and Wegovy have shown to lead to more weight loss and improved blood sugar levels than Trulicity, with fewer side effects.

Second Nature has launched both a Wegovy weight-loss programme and a Mounjaro weight-loss programme. Both programmes start from £229 per month, and to understand if you’re eligible you’ll firstly have to take our short health quiz.

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 Wegovy and Mounjaro. Both Wegovy and Mounjaro 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.

Weight-loss injections aren’t a magic pill

Weight-loss injections are designed as additional tools for weight management interventions and shouldn’t be considered lifelong medications.

Instead, they should be used to help you kickstart your weight loss and healthy journey while you commit to living a healthier lifestyle.

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 other weight loss injections, like Ozempic and Wegovy, are similar. They can allow you to make lifestyle changes to support long-term weight loss maintenance.

Mounjaro 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 is to calm down the feeling of food noise, lower your cravings, and 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.
