    Does caffeine reduce the effectivenes of creatine?

    I have heard that a study suggested it did, but also other claims the study was flawed.

    Should I give up my coffee? I usually drink 3-4 cups a day, as well as 1-3 cans of coke zero.

    Some days my caffeine intake is huge, others it isn't.

    don't worry about it, its fine. Just make sure you are drinking lots of water - which you should be doing anyway if you are taking creatine

    Maybe it does reduce it, but not negate it.

    I know how I am when taking just creatine, I know how I am when just taken caffeine. When taking both, it is better than taking either individually.

    I wouldn't say give it up. But, from a general health standpoint I would greatly reduce it over time.

    I went from 3-4 liters of Dr. Pepper a day 3 years ago to 24oz daily :hs:.

    about 2 years ago, i said i was going to stop drinking sodas. So i dropped them, just like that, didn't have one for a year and 3 months. Now I'm back on the soda binge, have around 2 8 oz cans every day :(

    If I do drink soda, it is at least of the diet variety, the 0 calorie kind.
