Figured nutrition was as good a place as any to ask....

If you're prescribed stool softeners would taking creatine be counterproductive since its purpose is to move water to your muscles while the softener's is to move water to your bowels? Will rep for good answer. TIA.

Creatine's purpose is NOT to move water to your muscles. That just occurs naturally. Drink enough fluid and you have plenty to go around.
