Is it safe to take tribulus along with creatine?

Is it safe to take tribulus along with creatine?

Shouldn't be a prob.: As long as you take them with enough water there shouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately neither of these have great evidence to support their use. Creatinine is taken to help with muscle growth and endurance, but controlled studies have been conflicting. Tribulus is used to increase testosterone levels, but once again this didn't prove true in controlled studies. ...Read more

Can I take creatine amino acids and tribulus at the same time?

Can I take creatine amino acids and tribulus at the same time?

What for?: What are you taking these supplements for? There is no evidence that these will do you any good. For good health do the following: Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. ...Read more

Is it safe to take concerta and creatine together? (36mg concerta + 1g creatine daily)

Not sure: I am not sure if it is helpful but some clinicians would argue that creatine can cause elevation or at least changes in mood and combining that with more psychoactive substances could lead to unpredictable results. I would talk to your prescribing doctor about your plans and see if there is an agreement that creatine is going to work well for your condition based on your history. Stay safe! ...Read more

That means a woman is safest if she doesn't take supplements that she does not truly need (some supplements are needed, most are NOT needed). Creatine supplements are usually unnecessary. ...Read more

Is it safe to take mega men vitamins if kidney creatine levels are mildly high 1.5?

Is it safe to take mega men vitamins if kidney creatine levels are mildly high 1.5?

Unclear benefit!!: Multivitamins are not as useful as they are thought to be. There is no known benefit. Possible though rare harm. Cost therefore is not justified. People feel better with multivitamins due to the awakening effects of vitamins esp vitamin b, not due to a health effect. The creatinine of 1.5 mg/dl does not constitue a big problem in and of itself. Wouldn't not use vits unless rarely&if eating poorly. ...Read more

Is it safe to take creatine and multivitamin supplements while on accutane? I am an 18 year old male wanting to gain lean muscle mass.

Safe but no benefit: The data on creatine remains controversial but at least it's safe. Same w/regards to multivitamins. Luckily, no interactions w/Accutane (isotretinoin) either.

Is creatine safe to take while taking half securon tablets?

TOTAY SAFE: Creatine is nothing more than a protein. In no way does it interact with verapamil (securon). You should have no problems. There is some evidence that creatine causes muscle cramps, possibly by depleting magnesium, but this has never been proven in clinical trial studies. Simply make sure that you are consuming enough water before, during and after your training sessions. Urine should be clear. ...Read more
