    I just started using creatine to see if it would help me out at all. Problem is it seems to give me the shakes really bad. Anyone else experience this?

    how much are you taking and when are you getting the shakes relative to the time of ingestion

    1 scoop (48 grams) + 8 oz. water 10 minutes before I work out. Then as per instructions, since I weigh over 125lbs (240 ish) I take another scoop immediately after the workout. Today I tried just the first scoop and still got shaky just before warm up and all thru warm up.

    Have you tried a lot of supplements?

    I bet it's just your nerves.

    shakes are probably unrelated. are you taking it before or after? with a pre workout supp? some more details would help rather than im shaking and taking creatine

    rofl it can't be 48 grams of creatine. he'd have a lot more problems than the shakes.

    not yet :)


    1 scoop (48g) but I'm looking more on this thing and the front just says creatine but then you read the smaller print and it says it has has a triple creatine matrix, NOS xtreme blend and BCAA nitro blend... think that just figured out the shakes lol
