i always took my creatine at the same time every day (regardless of workout day or non workout day) but i don't think it is a major issue... possibly a more even level if taken in a regimine.

[QUOTE=brsett]As long as the same time everyday included right after workouts, then you're fine. Why it matters is surprising to me, but it does.[/QUOTE]

Is it better to take it before or after a workout?

depending on how much red meat and fish i was eating.. I would usually take 10g pre training for a week to max out levels, then after the loading phase usually post training to replenish with glucose.

It really depends on the type of creatine you are taking, meaning, are there other ingredients included. There have been very few studies completed taking creatine after a workout, most studies have been on subjects taking before a workout.

The most important thing is that creatine is present in your system when your muscles need it. I have found the best type is Kre-Alkalyn a "buffered" form of creatine monohydrate. This helps prevent conversion into creatinine, which is known to cause cramping etc... All Kre-Alkalyn is made by the same company due to patent, and the brand I use is by Elite Delivery Technologies (Elite-K 90 Caps).
