    I doubt there is really a difference in effectiveness.
    I am merely wondering what you there, reading this right now, does.
    Do you take your Creatine before or after you work out?
    other times?

    Doesn't matter. Take it with carbs + protein.

    I would assume this is the best advice given that any powdered substance diluted with a lot of water can easily be wasted on a person with an empty stomach. Unless it can attach to something; it can come out as easily as it came in.

    It has to do with insulin response.

    I take my creatine after consuming Dextose/maltodextrin in the form of Spree candy on the drive home from the gym.

    Doesn't have to be this anal. Protein + carbs is perfectly fine (tuna/meat sandwich, whey + oats, spaghetti with meatballs, etc).

    Well I need the insulin spike on the drive home or i'll nod off and crash. Then when I get home I consume my Creatine whilst making my PWO shake.
