    Its supposed to be taken pre. You could have your coffee and start drinking the GM 15min before and maybe finish 15 min into your workout.

    Caffeine and creatine don't play well.

    "We cannot really gain any information from this study in terms of creatine and caffeine interactions."

    Layne says... "Caffeine may (not proven) have some negative effects on the creatine transporter but I believe that if you are taking 5g of creatine per day that is going to be enough to override those effects and still saturate the muscle cell."

    I love both my creatine and caffeine. Probably need my caffeine more though.:o
