    right now im taking BN's CEE powder. They have a CEE pills on their site, take 3 before, 3 after work out.

    Going to back to school in a week and thinking pills may be easier to take before and after work out...

    Anyone else use pills and see gains?

    You don't need to take it before and after a workout. You only have to make sure that you're getting a certain amount (3-5g) of creatine everyday whenever you want but along with carbs might favor a better absorption.

    As far as I know (which isnt very far mind you) its all the same shit. I prefer pills because they dont taste like cow shit.

    I just got CEE in pill format. And along the way they heated up at some point and the capsules got soft and when they cooled down they all stuck together. 240 capsules became one massive CEE pill :wtc:

    Keep any eye out for that I guess.

    PrimaForce. The reviews were good, they just too hot during shipping. Whatever material the capsule was made out of didn't with stand the heat in the back of a truck too well. 480 pills and can't take any of them. I was pretty pissed when I got them :hs:

    Hopefully BodyBuilding.com takes care of me here :x:

    Just as a follow up here with BodyBuilding.com:

    I just got off the phone with them and I give their service an A++. They are shipping me out two more bottles of PrimaForce CEE immediately. They also sent me a pre-paid shipping label that I can slap on the new package and mail them back the 'bad' bottles. No troubles what so ever. She said if the bottles she is shipping out today have the same problem then to ship all four bottles back and she will apply my credit to another product.

    She told me that PrimaForce CEE capsules is the only CEE capsule that they have been having this problem with this summer. She said the same melting problem has been happening to a lot of customers this summer with the PrimaForce capsules.

    I'll let you know if the new bottles have the same problem. Tremendous service by BodyBuilding.com though :bigthumb: :bowdown:

    pills are more convenient which for me means i'm more likely to remember to take it every day. It's worth the price premium to me for that reason, but otherwise there isn't a difference.
