Possible side effects:

Nausea, stomach upset, dizziness or weakness, loose stools, diarrhea, and weight gain are the most common creatine side effects, and generally occur with creatine dosages greater than 5 grams a day. Another creatime side effect sometimes reported is muscle cramping. Strains and sprains can occur (perhaps even muscle tears?) when individuals over enthusiastically and rapidly increase their workout regimen before their tendons and ligaments have adapted to the increase in muscle size and power.

Some people get cramping and diarea. Just make sure you start out taking really small doses (1/2 gram a day or less at first) and drink lots of water

I tried creatine a couple of times and I really think it made my reaction time alot slower. Check it out in Linda Page's Healthy Healing.

Isn't creatine an animal product? don't they extract it from cows?

Humans/animals produce it naturally in the body; it can also be synthesized. The synthesized version is generally vegan.
