    I read on here a while ago that certain supplements can conflict and it makes it pointless to take them. The ones i recall reading about was ephedrine and creatine.

    There was a time frame between taking the two... anyone know what it is?

    well you need caffeine for ephedrine to be effective. caffeine is a diuretic. creatine pumps water into your muslces. counteractive.

    i'm assuming something with ephedrine's vasoconstrictor properties well have a negative effect on creatine.

    IIRC the half life of ephedrine is 3-4hrs so within a day or two of you last dose you should be fine to hop on ephedrine. end a creatine cycle on friday, start e/c on monday
