Can I use Trulicity® (dulaglutide) in patients with a history of Pancreatitis?
Dulaglutide has not been studied in patients with a history of pancreatitis. However, pancreatitis has been reported with its use. Dulaglutide should be discontinued if pancreatitis is suspected.
What should I do if a patient shows signs of pancreatitis ?
- Discontinue dulaglutide therapy if you suspect pancreatitis
- Do not restart dulaglutide therapy if pancreatitis is confirmed
- Inform the patients about the characteristic symptoms of acute pancreatitis.
Elevations in pancreatic enzymes alone, without other signs of acute pancreatitis, are not predictive of acute pancreatitis.1
After initiation of dulaglutide, observe patients carefully for signs and symptoms of pancreatitis, including persistent severe abdominal pain.2
