Instructions for Use 1 TRULICITY (Trū-li-si-tee) (dulaglutide) injection, for subcutaneous use 0.75 mg/0.5 ml Single-Dose Pen once weekly BREAK SEAL BREAK SEAL Unfold and lay flat Read both sides for full instructions Information About TRULICITY Single-Dose Pen Please read this Instructions for Use and the Medication Guide carefully and completely before using your TRULICITY Single-Dose Pen. Talk to your healthcare provider about how to inject TRULICITY the right way. TRULICITY Single-Dose Pen (Pen) is a disposable, prefilled medicine delivery device. Each Pen contains 1 dose of TRULICITY (0.75 mg/0.5 ml). Each Pen should only be used 1 time. TRULICITY is used 1 time each week. You may want to mark your calendar to remind you when to take your next dose. Before You Get Started 2 Remove Check Inspect Prepare Remove the Pen from the refrigerator. Check the Pen label to make sure you have the right medicine and it has not expired. Expiration Date Check the Pen to make sure that it is not damaged and inspect the medicine to make sure it is not cloudy, discolored or has particles in it. Wash your hands. Choose Your Injection Site Your healthcare provider can help you choose the injection site that is best for you. You may inject the medicine into your stomach (abdomen) or thigh. Another person may give you the injection in your upper arm. Change (rotate) your injection site each week. You may use the same area of your body, but be sure to choose a different injection site in that area.

Do not throw away (dispose of) Pens in your household trash. If you do not have a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, you may use a household container that is: - made of a heavy-duty plastic, - can be closed with a tight-fitting, punctureresistant lid, without sharps being able to come out, - upright and stable during use, - leak-resistant, and - properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside the container. When your sharps disposal container is almost full, you will need to follow your community guidelines for the right way to dispose of your sharps disposal container. There may be state or local laws about how you should throw away used needles and syringes. For more information about safe sharps disposal, and for specific information about sharps disposal in the state that you live in, go to the FDA s website at: Do not recycle your used sharps disposal container. Storage and Handling 6 Store your Pen in the refrigerator between 36 F to 46 F (2 C to 8 C). You may store your Pen at room temperature below 86 F (30 C) for up to a total of 14 days. Do not freeze your Pen. If the Pen has been frozen, throw the Pen away and use a new Pen. Storage of your Pen in the original carton is recommended. Protect your Pen from direct heat and light. The Pen has glass parts. Handle it carefully. If you drop it on a hard surface, do not use it. Use a new Pen for your injection. Keep your TRULICITY Pen and all medicines out of the reach of children. Commonly Asked Questions What if I see an air bubble in my Pen? Air bubbles are normal. What if I unlock the Pen and press the green Injection Button before pulling off the Base Cap? Do not remove the Base Cap. Throw away the Pen and get a new Pen. What if there is a drop of liquid on the tip of the needle when I remove the Base Cap? A drop of liquid on the tip of the needle is normal. Do I need to hold the Injection Button down until the injection is complete? This is not necessary, but it may help you keep the Pen steady and firm against your skin. I heard more than 2 clicks during my injection 2 louder clicks and 1 soft one. Did I get my complete injection? Some patients may hear a soft click right before the second loud click. That is the normal operation of the Pen. Do not remove the Pen from your skin until you hear the second louder click. What if there is a drop of liquid or blood on my skin after my injection? This is normal. I am not sure if my Pen worked the right way. Check to see if you have received your dose. Your dose was delivered the right way if the gray plunger is visible (see step 3). Also contact Lilly at Lilly-Rx ( ) or your healthcare provider for further instructions. Until then, store your Pen safely to avoid an accidental needle stick.
