Also wondering about timing. If I am say, having a coffee from 8:30am to 9:30am, then having breakfast at 10-10:30am and working out at 12:00noon, when should I be taking my creatine? Should it even be after the workout with my lunch at 1:15pm?
Creatine + caffeine can increase the risk of dehydration and may increase the risk of stroke.
