Creatine supplements can be taken even if you have enlarged prostate as there are no mentioned adverse effect on the prostate. But make sure that your liver and kidney functions are fine before using this.

Although well tolerated, but there are chances of side effects that may arise so it better to watchfully monitor yourself for any unusual effects (and report these to your doctor immediately) whenever you start any new supplement like creatine.
