    Question Does creatine cause face bloat?

    I've google'd it, checked other threads, and it seems to be split 50/50. What is your experience? Obviously if you've been on it for years, you won't know/remember.

    no but you being too fat does. I don't necessarily mean that towards you but everytime "in real life" I see someone who says "it's the creatine making me bloat" they are full of crap and too fat.

    Read up how creatine works...we do know exactly how it works we don't have to guess on this question fortunately.

    Yes, creatine will make your face bloat. It's only temporary though. I've noticed that after around 5 days coming off it my face begins to thin out to normal and then goes back to normal in the week after. could be contributed to more fluid retention. Been using creatine for about 7 years on and off (mostly on). Hope this helps

    When I first tried creatine years ago in the Phosphagen days, the heaping teaspoons of the recommended loading and suggested maintenance phase caused me to retain water throughout my body but most noticable was in the face. Taking a look a pics .... and pics don't lie.

    No.

    The main side effect from creatine is potentially a GI upset, but if you're at around 3-5g/day it shouldn't occur.

    For the love of God man, just take the fukking creatine...

    This is the second cry thread (that I know of) that you're posting the same fukking question: "will creatinez make me look fat???"

    Man the fuk up, take 3-5g a day for a month than get back to us.

    Chicks will forgive the face bloat due to the bulge bloat that comes from penile lengthening/thickening after creatine use.

    I don't believe creatine by itself should cause any bloating.. doesn't bloat me.

    Most of the people I've encountered who claim it made them bloated were also taking it with excessive amounts of dextrose or some other similar sugar.. or were loading with 10+ grams a day.. along with excessive amounts of destrose or some other similar sugar.

    Go figure..
