Were you using creatine mono, or a fancy mix?

creatine falls into my nice but not neccesarry category, plus it is hit and miss. I have known guys who did extrmely well on it, but i never felt a damn thing, maybe an extra rep here or there, but that is hard to distinguish from what i was already getting.

Creatine is a big hit for me. It's like ingesting lava into my veins. My strength goes up, but the pumps are insane.

Review: Desiccated Liver Tablets - IronOnline Weight Training Forum

What I have found since I began taking it is that my energy is better. I don't feel like the walking zombie that I used to feel like with my current work schedule. I'm on my first tub of tablets, and generally take 3 at each meal. That is a total of about 15 tablets a day.

Besides being rich in iron, they are loaded with amino acids. I plan to keep taking it for the forseeable future.
I was wondering specifically what brand you take and where you buy them, I would like to try them but I am on a budget right now.

Here is my list:
Multi-vitamin
fish oil
protein
creatine
caffeine (don't know if the is necessary but it gets me jacked up prior to workouts)
