I am going to take Creatine monohydrate how much water?

Patient : I am going to take Creatine monohydrate how much water should I drink?
Doctor :   Hi, Thank you for writing to Ask The Doctor. You should try to drink as much water as possible with creatine to p revent its side effects. The minimum water everyone should drink is 2L per day. If you are performing vigorous activity that causes you to sweat a lot, I advise you to drink more water to replace the water loss. Stop taking Creatine if you get any side effects. Have a good day.
