I have taken it before and it works. Just as this user has said, it can at times help you to get that one extra rep out of a set.
But please be sure to drink PLENTY of water if cycling creatine, because you can get cramps if you do not. Serious.
I will start taking it again myself soon. I dread drinking so much water, but it does make me look just a little bit more "swole" from some water retention as well.
