It's my first time using pure creatine supplement, and I started taking 10 grams per day, one in the morning and one after workout. What do you think? I'm 18, 5'11" and 170 lb.

How Much Creatine?

Typically, people go through a loading phase of 20 grams of creatine a day for five days, then go to five grams a day maintenance. Others just start with five grams a day and keep on with that. They usually get the same results, but it takes a bit longer. You generally don't need as much creatine as you think, so cut back after a short loading phase. More is not better.
