I was talking about oral selegiline in terms of the food interactions, but about the interaction with other drugs in terms of serotonin levels, it is a question mark for me. IE, the patch would presumably side step the food issue, but I doubt it would change the issue of serotonin interactions.
And I was also presuming that the dose and type of MAO sites affected would be the same for both, which could reflect different levels of effectiveness in treating depression.
Bear in mind, this is conjecture on my part! Hopefully, one of our resident scientists will step in and help us out here!
