In brief: Should be - HYDRATE

Creatine should be safe to take while training, as long as you adequately hydrate.
I always recommend getting exercise supplements cleared by your physician.

In brief: With caution

Creatine can put more strain on your kidneys and you should drink plenty of water while using it.
The best thing to do is get a well balanced diet and protein from food instead of using these types of products.
