    Do you ever get a headache, or feel out of it when you take creatine? I've taken it in the past and sometimes I would get headaches or feel slightly dizzy. Anyone know what causes this?

    Never experienced it...but man everyone reacts differently. There are people that get headaches off Moutain Dew, REd Bull, and crap like that....if it does harm to you then go on the next thing.

    That's why I stopped taking it. I got really dizzy and blurred vision one day and had a headache for about a week afterwards.

    That's my guess too, but it started the first day i got back on creatine. I use Pure creatine monohydrate, and 20 grams of it for loading. Maybe it's just too much? I'm a small guy...150 lbs

    you're taking 20 grams? wtf?

    And try upping your water intake, as I sometimes get headaches if I'm dehydrated.

    You take 20g (in a day?!) of monohydrate and you wonder why you have problems? Drink more water and switch to CEE.
