Creatine/Results long term gains??

Looking for some info on the use of creatine and aln results products. Obviously creatine has numerous studies out there and Aln results product gets praise on here. My question lies in after using them for several months do your "strength" gains diminish with stoppage of use or is this something that needs to be taken I indefinitely. As long as training is consistent I would think any gains made would stay. I know neither is a miracle drug to make me strong but a supplement to assist with gains. I know for my lifestyle I can train pretty consistent 4-5x week for 3-4 month clips but due to life training gets interrupted often where for me taking a product line this during that time would not be cost effective if not able to train. Thanks for the comments

If you don't workout you will lose your gains regardless. If you stop taking creatine you will stop seeing the benefits you had gained from it but it will not cause your muscles to atrophy or anything like that.
