    Im taking Perfect Creatine Monohydrate, and was just curious if it mattered when I took it. The morning? That seems to be when my metabolism is the fastest.. Or before/after workout?

    i take before, some people take after

    I don't take on off days, but some people take in the morning on off days

    It doesn't really matter, but take it around the time you workout.

    This has also been answered before so look around.

    it says take it once drew. I mean maybe I can bend that a little, but ive never fucked with creatine before so ive been taking it directly as it says. But I guess it shouldnt matter as long as I take the right amount in one day. sorry ice, I cant search since I dont have a sub yet

    It differs per brand, so anytime is fine somewhere close to when you work out. Personally I take it before I work out.

    Mine came with directions. "5 grams day, 4 times a day during the first week of loading. 5 grams once per day every day after that". It DOESNT say what time of day. Probably because it doesn't matter. Get it
