some people seem to avoid it from extra stress on the kidneys but i really think it's very minor stress as it is and can be avoided with water consumption. I also don't think you will even notice the effects of creatine while on cycle do to gear making your body stronger and recover faster than creatine ever would compare to.

Yes use creatine during cycle. It will help grow your muscles even more than with just an anabolic. Studies are on this site. It's been covered before.

I would say use creatine all the time. I am becoming more of a fan of creatine than ever.
Myostatin inhibition has been demonstrated and the simple fact of refueling CP and atp stores alone is great for gym performance.
I have been dosing it in 5 g increments with meals throughout the day....

all im going to say is that while I was taking creatine I always felt thirsty and I was drinking all the water in the world and peeing right out and I was bloated to high heavens. Def stress on the kidneys. I have not touched creatine in years best move I ever made, im bigger and stronger without it.
I think it's effects are blown up too much. I eat beef which has plenty of creatine in it. I dont think it ever really put any muscle on me besides water weight which upon seccesion all the "gains" went away.

Man... How were u taking the creatine? We're you loading it? If you take it at 3-5 grams daily once per day everyday you will be saturated after about 3-4 weeks. And you have to eat a TON of red meat to have any noticeable effects of the creatine because there is such a tiny bit in it. Creatine draws water into the muscles increasing protein synthesis as well as turning ADP into ATP at a much faster rate enabling that "extra rep" during sets. You won't notice huge gains but it will make a difference overtime. After saturation, you can take 3-5 grams on workout days assuming you workout 4-5 days per week and will still maintain saturation. I'm starting my 1st cycle of test e 250 and SD and will continue creatine throughout cycle and PCTOriginally Posted by vassille

Over all im not sure why this happened but I know it was becoming a problem.

How much do you weigh? And IMO loading isn't a good option.. People tend to bloat because of the high intake so quick. But seriously the beef you're eating isn't giving you creatine benefits. Try buying some bulk creatine powder. Can be mono or a blend and dose at 3-5 grams daily for a month, then 3-5 grams on workout days only assuming you are in the gym 4-5 days a week

Guys I use micronized creatine mono, creatine gluconate, or old school creasol effervescent.
Will dose 5-10 g a few times a day --- I dont bloat....my muscles stay tight and full....veins still there and no noticeable subcutaneous water retention.
Creatine always should be intra-cellular -- I believe people bloated badly from things like cell-tech or knock offs which had 80g of sugar which sky rocketed insulin levels resulting in too many carbyhydrates in a day...

I wouldn't stop creatine during cycle.....and then reintroduce it during pct, for the simple fact if you want the benefits of creatine at 5g's a day it's going to take more than half of your pct just to get back to full saturation, why not have the creatine already fully loaded when you hit pct
