How many grams of creatine to consume per day?

I take creatine monohydrate (5g) usually right after I lift. I usually take a Nitric Oxide product which contains 4 grams of creatine monohydrate.  So I take in about 9 grams per day...Should I take the creatine monohydrate more often during the day? I've heard it's good to consume up to 10-15 grams per day is that true?  If it is, is it safe to take that much? Suggestions?

    5 grams a day is the usual dose.

    Don't even bother with it. No one gets big from Creatine supplements.

    Stick to a good workout routine, good diet and good rest.

    Anywhere from 3-10 grams a day is fine.
     
    It's one of the most researched and effective supplements out there.

    I do 1-2 scoops of 5 gm each per day, one pre or early morn then train a few hours after, in between clients, then I take one after which can be sometimes a few hours later although it is good if you can get it in within 30 mins after.

    It is safe to do 10g a days since you burn about 5g with each workout anyways.  Just make sure you drink plenty of water or you will cramp up.  And to whoever said you don't get big from creatine... do you realize you naturally have creatine in your system anyways and its one of the big factors of muscle growth?

    people do get BIG from creatine. Before you speak, gain some knowledge on what you're talking about. Because apparently you havent the slightest clue.
