Well, what are you expecting out of it? In my experience creatine is great for muscle recovery, and getting glutamine if it's in your creatine. I never gained any mass off of it but like I said, It was great for muslce recovery.

creatine doesnt "give" you more mass, the faster muscle recovery gained by creatine use helps aid in adding muscle mass

Also look into some beta-alanine product and some glutamine. Beta-alanine is supposed to be the new creatine and when you combine the two its supposed to be even better.

Like it was said earlier Creatine works for some while it doesn't for some. This differs from person to person. It is quite useful to increase the body mass, but its efficient use depends on the composition of the body.

I started taking it about 3 weeks ago and i havent "noticed" anything. but that is def not a definitive answer. In fact, Ive had my best workouts supplement free, just with good pre and post workout diet and plenty of rest. Im starting to think i should have never spent money on half the stuff i have

Agreed Creatine is great for recovery as is Whey protein!!

creatine is in not for mass/muscle size,creaine monohydrate is an energy/recovery supplement,it has worked wonders for me(i am a bodybuilder if your wondering)
but as someone else said already it does not work for everyone,give it a try for a solid 4-6 weeks no noticibale difference?? then forget about it.
