This creatine is making me thirsty

G’day fellow t-men. I was wondering what peoples thoughts were on creatine and increased water intake. When I am on the stuff I am always thirsty. Any thoughts?

You must absolutely drink a lot more water when taking creatine…sounds like you need to carry a pitcher around with you. Thirst is a bad sign, especially with creatine and is indicative of a serious water intake shortfall - easily corrected though

I have found that when I am on Creatine I am always thirsty. Most say that it does not cause lack water in the body…I need to copious amounts of water to prevent cramping. Drink…water.

Heres a thought Ryan…drink water when ure thirsty. :wink:
