    No, I take creatine and your suppose to take it 8 weeks on / 4 weeks off. I never load anymore and you still see the same results, even after not taking it for 4 weeks.

    No need. It takes at least 2 weeks for muscle creatine stores to return to baseline levels if you stop using it.

    You do NOT have to cycle creatine; this is purely personal preference. And even if you DO cycle it, loading is NOT necessary.
