You need to saturate your muscles with it. It will take about 2 weeks. Also, I read taking creatine after workouts, rather than before, increases results

Ok thanks a lot!

Don't forget to drink it on your non workout days also!

Lots of bad advice here. Creatine must be loaded for about 5-7 days about 20 grams in divided dosages. It makes absolutely no difference if you take it before or after the gym. After the loading phase 5-10 grams once or twice a day is plenty. Do about 10 weekd on then take a month off. Drink plenty of water or don't expect any results.
