Creatine - Frequent Urination

Hello, I recently started taking Optimum Nutrition's Creatine and my bathroom visits to urinate have multiplied from 3-4 a day to 9-10. During these visits I don't typically expel a lot of urine but the urge is certainly there. Is this sort of reaction to Creatine normal? I've noticed the urgency even when I haven't taken in a lot of water throughout the day. I'm going to increase my water intake and see if that helps. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Increasing your water intake would only make it worse?

The short answer is no, that is not a normal reaction. My best guess is you are subconsciously ingesting more water and thus urinating more often and or have a subconscious belief that creatine somehow loads the kidneys or the like and thus have a psychosomatic reaction in the form of increased urge to urinate.

Re: Creatine - Frequent Urination

Something else is raising your blood sugar. Hence the ****ing



And why would drinking more water reduce the problem?
