    depends....dont expect crazy gains off mono. you dont need to load either, just get 5 grams everyday....if you dsecide to stop creatine use then your diet makes all the difference in muscle retention....

    The thing to remember with creatine, is that it increseases water retention and cell saturation of it, thus making you "weight more" which is just water IN THE BEGINNING. Creatine does help build muscle mass , but you have to stay on it a while, since it does help strength and muscle endurance, lets just say if you wanna put on some lbs on creatine , dont quit it after geting some 5 lbs , go for at least some 10lbs up and then you know at least half of that should be muscle mass (or fat depending on training and nutrition) and when the de-loading and the de-bloating occurs you will wonly be losing the water weight. But thats just the way I like to think of it and use creatine hehe

    yep thats it, creatine only holds water retention in your muscles to help you lift.

    Never hear of it but a lot of people dont get bloated on creatine. I dont bloat and ive been taking 10g for two months now. If yur really scared of bloat then ethyl ester creatine supposedly doesnt cause it. Ive only ever used mono cuz it works and dirt cheap.. $23 for a kilo

    The water weight you gain initially will be temporary, but the long-term gains in strength and lean mass will be permanent. Everything you need to know about it, including scientific support, can be found here.

    creatine gains are similar to sodium loading, only temporary. Actual size gain is a result of weight gain usually, and water weight doesnt count.
