Some Roger/steroid/in-the-ass talk
January 7th, 2008 by czar

Why would Roger Clemens take shots of B-12 when he could just– uh– take them orally?  And Lidocaine in the ass?  Yeah, it’s always my ASS that hurts after throwing eight shutout innings.

Shots of B-12 are given for energy increases and boosted metabolism. For a person to match the B-12 given through a shot, they would need to take a much larger dosage orally, over a longer period of time (4 or 5 doses per day as opposed to one or two per week). Apparently, effects of B12 shots are also felt more immediately than orally. Many doctors and general practices offer (relatively inexpensive) shots of B-12 over oral for ease of use and simplicity purposes.

As for Lidocaine, getting an injection in the ass would help with lower back pain.

Even if it is B-12, isn’t Clemens risking “overdoing it?”

B-12 is water soluble, excess is excreted in the urine. So theoretically, there should be little or no health effects from excess B-12. (Again, with the note that I’m not a doctor)
