Yes its safe in short term doses, but dont take too much ahahah. Side effects include: Quote Wikipedia:
Some current studies indicate that short-term creatine supplementation in healthy individuals is safe, although those with renal disease should avoid it due to possible risks of renal dysfunction, and before using it healthy users should bear these possible risks in mind. Small-scale, longer-term studies have been done and seem to demonstrate its safety. There have been reports of muscle cramping with the use of creatine, though a study showed no reports of muscle cramping in subjects taking creatine-containing supplements during various exercise training conditions in trained and untrained endurance athletes. The cause of the reported cramping by some users may be due to dehydration, and extra water intake is vital when supplementing with creatine.
