Post Accutane and WEIGHT GAIN???

Hey, anyone gained weight on accutane or had a hard time losing weight while on it?? I feel like i gained a few pounds after starting it and I am an avid runner, workout almost everyday and do yoga on a regular basis, eat extremely healthy, tons of fruits and veggies, very little fat, and i just cant seem to lose weight. Never had a problem losing weight when i wanted to before starting this. Anyone else experienced weight gain or loss???

I turned into a chunky monkey too, when I first started Accutane. It was because of the awful birth control shot -Ew, I hate that method of bc. When I switched to Yasmine, I slowly started to feel less chunk-da-fied. Now I am almost back to normal. It took about a month.
