Drinking Creatine Makes Me Sick?


#1

I used to drink a protein shake with 1 serving of creatine post workout but quit because it makes me nauseas. When I drink the stuff I seriously feel like I'm going to puke.

Does anyone know of a quality creatine that comes in a different form say a pill that I can take to get good creatine without (hopefully) the nausea?

BTW I did a search but found nothing on my specific issue.

As always thanks!

Man up and don't be a wussbag! Kidding kidding, throw it in Surge you won't even taste it. And Surge is kick ass for recovery at any rate. They work hand in hand.

My aerobic workout was a stairway of 160 steps. I put a "measure" of an orange(?) flavored creatine in a quart of iced water and left it at the top of the steps. Each time I got to the top I had a drink. I got to the point where I was able to run up the steps some five times in a row before I said enough. I think I absorbed the drink before it ever hit my stomach. I was hot, winded and in need of the liquid. Never an upset.

Use a lot of liquid and make sure the creatine is throughly disolved.

I prefer the caps.

use it with juice or something or gatorade
