    I understand people react creatine differently but a lot of people gain 5-10 pounds of water weight when they take it and lose it over a couple weeks when they stop taking it.

    I'm taking NO explode before training and Nitrix 3 times a day. They both contain creatine but they don't say exactly how much so I can't begin to figure this out. Is it possible I'm retaining some water weight I wouldn't normally and I'll lose even 3 or 4 pounds when I stop taking it?

    I'm not trying to take creatine until April. Just wondering if there was enough creatine to have an effect. Not my aim, just happens to be in there.

    When I do take creatine I'm not sure yet what it'll be.

    dont worry, No-explode/nitrix is a vasodilator
    it's main effect is to give you pumps and helps give you energy during your workout
