Thank you for writing to Ask The Doctor.
You should try to drink as much water as possible with creatine to prevent 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.
