What are the differences between creatine and anabolic support supplements?

I am currently taking creatine along with whey protien as supplements and have noticed a few anabolic support such as “Testostro Grow Ultimate Nutrition”.

I was wondering if supplements like this are better than creatine supplements when trying to stay lean and gain muscle

According to drugs.com, creatine can negatively affect the actions of many drugs, and people taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories should not take creatine because their combined use will stress the kidneys. Arginine may cause people with herpes simplex to suffer increased outbreaks. If you are taking monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, or have sleeping disorders, high blood pressure or heart diseas, consult a doctor before taking supplements containing caffeine.

Creatine Side Effects
Drugs.com advises those using creatine to drink extra fluids, because creatine can cause dehydration, muscle cramps, reduced blood volume, decreased urine volume and electrolyte imbalances. Creatine has also caused allergic reactions that include swelling in the lips, tongue and face, labored breathing, closing of the throat and hives.
Nitric Oxide Side Effects
Nitric oxide acts as a vasodilator, expanding the blood vessels, and it can cause a sudden drop in blood pressure. Vasodilators may also cause dizziness, headaches, nausea, fluid retention, tachycardia (fast heart beat) and skin rashes.
Caffeine Side Effects
Drugs.com reports that caffeine side effects ange from diarrhea, increased urination, hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), stomach pain and vomiting to cold sweats, dizziness, fast heartbeat, dry mouth, blurred vision, insomnia, irritability and nervousness.

According to the Mayo Clinic, 10 – 35% of your daily dietary intake should be protein – whether trying to gain weight, lose weight, or maintain weight. Most of this comes from our regular food and we seldom need to take protein supplements. Even more damning for this myth are two recent studies by independent sport medicine journals in which various people (including bodybuilders) were given varying extra quantities of protein each day; summing one study up, Dr Richard Krieder from the University of Memphis said: “Although it is important for athletes to get an adequate amount of protein . . . consuming additional amounts of protein does not appear to promote muscle growth.”
