I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

Wiley Protocol are Bio-identical natural estradiol and progesterone hormones. So they may be responsible for weight gain. Cymbalta and Abilify too can increase body weight. Lastly, lack of sleep is known to cause hormonal changes in the body which are likely responsible for increase in body weight. All these factors may contribute in some way.
