    i did double over amount 15mins after taking my 10g this morning, was fine after that! nice firm poops too! Not really had any problems with creatine before.

  9. If I take creatine in the morning, it kills me. When I take it with my PWO shake, it doesn't bother me.

  10. sorry guys its 6g not 57g i dont know what i was thinking.

  11. Are you guys using monohydrate? Because a form like MCC or CEE doesn't bloat

  12. Yes, certain types of creatine will make you bloat. I had that problem with Cell-Tech, but like RenegadeRows said you may want to try one of those types and see if that works better for you. I've had great success with a pill form of creatine ethyl ester .Good luck

    yea maybe i need to try the pill form to see what happens. thanks for your response.

    try drinking more water with it, might help.

  17. say if you take 10-15g a day instead of 5g, will you get better results with it? or does it just go out the other end>?

    I've been getting better results by takign 20g a day, make sure you drink a lot of water throughout the day though.
