Some people get kidney stones if they don't drink enough water, and if you use a certain type it can lead to bloating. I've used creatine hydrochloride and it worked pretty well. GNC sells it and it's called amplified creatine, you take a tiny amount compared to usual dosages. I found that I could work out harder, and longer, and recover quicker. I haven't used the stuff for about a year though. I figure Grok wouldn't have used it, so I probably shouldn't either. When I did, I felt like I needed it or my workout wasn't worth as much, and I don't like that dependence.
It probably won't hurt to try it, but I'd say you probably don't need it. Practice and protein will get you there just fine.
