OCD Craziness and Creatine


I suffer from anxiety and ocd. I recently tried “c4 pre-workout explosive energy” product (not c4 extreme). I became very anxious and the same thing happened to me before when I tried another type of creatine (not a pre-workout blend). My question is how long would it take for the 1 gram of creatine to be completely out of my system? I’ve heard it can take up to 30 days in some cases. I know I’m being pretty weird about this but it’s just the way my mind works. Driving myself crazy… thanks for the feedback.


Probably too much caffeine for someone with anxiety, as I occasionally have some problems with.

Try just straight creatine- no additives or “explosiveness”.


You probably eat a gram of creatine from regular meats and fish


And your body naturally produces about another gram every day.
