Hi, I am a highschool senior, and i am about to start going to the gym regularly to work out. I have been considering taking Creatine, a drug in which many of my freinds take. Now, abuse of the drug is one thing, but if i take it like it says to and do not abuse it, is there any major risks involved? I know the substance works, but is it really a risk I should be taking? Also, is there an alternative route. Thank you.
I am 5'6, 145 pounds, I played a fall sport and in good shape despite only running occasionally. I am very healthy.

Now whether these adverse effects were caused directly from overuse, normal use or purchase of low quality creatine is unknown. Always let your physician know about any supplements you decide to take just in case something does go wrong, so they'll have a clue where to start for causes.
