    I don't get PEM. I am just severely tired all the time.
    So wondering if creatine monohydrate increases general energy levels.

    I used to get a 5 to 10% strength increase when powerlifting, after being on creatine monohydrate for about 2 to 3 weeks. I'd be on creatine for a 3 month cycle.

    I always liked the way examine.com outlines supplements with their human effect matrix.
    https://examine.com/supplements/Creatine/

    Scroll down to the Human Effect Matrix and click on the studies beside Fatigue to see some of it's effects in research.

    I've just started creatine monohydrate recently. I'm getting slightly more energy and improvement in muscle weaknes and loss. I also gained 1.5kg which was impossible for 7 years. I'm sure I have some big metabolic problem because I got additional mitochondrial dysfunction from antibiotics.

    The weight gain will almost certainly be water retention which is very common with creatine intake
