Alright... This isn't my first time loading creatine monohydrate, but it's the first time in a long time, so I don't remember how my body reacts to it. (for my load, I am taking 5 grams 4 times a day for 5 days - additionally, i am already taking an intra-workout creatine product, which has previously caused me no stomach issues)
I'm on day 2 of the load, and already I've got bloating and intestinal issues. Not brutal, but not so comfortable either. Now, I can push through just about anything if it will get me stronger.
My question is, if you are of the type that does get intestinal upset from loading creatine monohydrate, do you personally just work through it? Or did you ditch the monohydrate all together? Any other tips?
For now I will continue to push through it and see what happens. Perhaps the stomach issues will subside after the loading phase.
