Hello, I need to find out about using Creatine. I have been lifting weights since almost 10 years now with a lot of breaks in between and have never been able to build some quality muscle. My goal is to build a good physique and stay fit. I am a vegetarian and have very recently started eating eggs. I have been reading about Creatine over the internet in the last few days. Creatine seems to be a good source of supplement to build muscle and increase strength. As such, did not read any harmful effects on the usage of Creatine. Can someone here help me with some guidance of using Creatine? I would request only Doctors who know about Creatine to reply. Please do not misunderstand me. Thanks!

Hye. Thankyou for the query. You must know that to prescribe any supplement the basic diet ,exercise routine and other lifestyle factors need to be considered. Also developing muscles can be managed without supplements as well. It's very possible you are not eating the right foods at the right time as needed by the body and hence even after 10 years of workout you have not been able to develop a good physique. I would advise you to go for a personalised diet consultation. Prescriptions cannot be done on a general basis.
