N---------- I can't delete the entire answer. Okay. So cretin. It works best for high intensity repetitive -short duration work outs like jumping, lift, etc. Some studies show two things: using a loading does (20g/day divided 4 times per day for 5-7 day_ followed by 5-10 g/ day prior to the short duration/high intensity exercise for maintenance may help you own body use it more efficiently and fill your bodies creatine storage's. And secondly, some people are non responders and only their body naturally makes and it doesn't help at all to take extra cretin. Weight gain is a side effect and cold be possible alongside or instead of muscle building, every person is different. its the best/healthiest muscle building option. However it does have risks of kidney injuries if you take too much too long. so if you aren't seeing the results you want after a month or so I'd stop!

Yes it is bad to take caffeine with creatine. Both caffeine and creatine dehydrate you so you will get really dehydrated. Even when on creatine alone you should drink a lot of water because creatine needs a lot of water to work and you will get dehydrated if you don't drink water when on it. Also caffeine will reduce the effectiveness of creatine.

Vitamins are totally different things to creatine. Good sources for creatine are fish and red meat. If you are willing you can also look into supplementing creatine. Creatine monohydrate is the most proven type of creatine supplement.
