Hey guys i just started using creatine again. I have read about increased urination while being on creatine because of an increase in liquid intake. I have been consuming MUCH more liquid than usual (~2-2.5 gallons opposed to probably less than 1 gallon), but I dont start urinating until after i take my creatine.
So, for example, I drank about a gallon of water before my workout, and went to the bathroom 1-2 times. Then i took creatine pre/post workout, and from then i probably went about 10 times. Its slowed down now, about 5 hours after my workout.
Could I be taking too much creatine? I take 1 scoop of Biotest creatine (5 grams) before and after my workout mixed with iced tea mix (sugar is the first ingredient).
I guess my questions are:
- Am i taking too much creatine?
- Am i pissing so much because im taking too much creatine and my body wants to get rid of it?
