    Post Creatine Effects

    What's up guys, 18 yr. old from NJ here.

    Curious as to the effects of creatine so far as well as if I should stop taking it?

    As of recently been taking 10-15g twice per week along with some T-Boosting supplement (Myogrow from Metabolic Nutrition)

    Hairline is somewhat thinning but no loss yet, curious if I should stop before things get bad

    Been doing this for about 2 years now.

    Read the creatine sticky thread in the Supplements forum.

    For most people there is no real downside to creatine and it's usually a no brainer.

    Creatine is a relatively safe supplement to use. One of the only ones you really need besides probably a whey protein to help reach your daily protein intake goals.

    The thing about creatine is you want to do it consistently , something like 5g a day works well, or even 1g a day. However, some people believe that you need to cycle off and on as you may be telling your body "i have a steady supply of creatine coming in, make the necessary changes you need" which may end up affecting how your body utilizes dietary creatine or how it stores creatine , etc.

    But luckily Creatine is not a new supplement and there is a lot of research on it. Rarely do people have side effects with creatine. So don't worry. Just take around 1-5 grams a day for as long as you want and if you must, go off of it . ie: cycle on and off, 6 weeks on, 6 weeks off or whatever you may need.

    However, there are people, including myself in the past who has taken 5 grams a day for up to a year.. No side effects besides you will retain more water in your muscles, thus making you look a bit more buff than you actually are.

    I hope this helps.

    Dude drop those test boosters. Utter waste of your money as they will do nothing for you. Sticking between 1-5g of creatine a day like what mot1ve said is a good way to go about it and just making sure you intake enough water.
    Just keep on going.
