Typically I've been taking my creatine and magnesium citrate together. But do to digestive issues I decided to separate them to isolate variables. And strangely, the calm that I figured was just the Calm in Natural Calm was really coming from the creatine. It's not a particularly bad feeling just unexpected so I was wondering what's up. And I am drinking plenty of water, thanks for asking. Anyone else experience a similar side effect from creatine? Anyone have an explanation of why this may be?
I have the total opposite affect. I have my creatine first thing in the morning, literally as soon as I get up, followed by a strong black coffee, then I hit the gym. I feel good in the morning with heaps of energy. I have never heard of it making someone tired. Since you are taking it with natural calm I am assuming that you are having it before bed. The best time to have creatine is about 30 minutes before doing exercise.
