Transdermal rasagiline - anyone have any information on it?

I've been doing research on rasagiline (it's the generic for Azilect). It seems that a transdermal form of it was in trials as of April 2016. However, I can't find anything else published about it since that date. Does anyone have any additional information on the transdermal rasagiline?

(It would be wonderful to be able to get all our medication by just putting a small patch somewhere on our skin. That would give our digestive systems a rest from all the drugs, and boy, do they need a rest!).

Thank you.

Ive never heard of this. Can you find where you read it? Selegiline is available as a patch but that strength is for treatment of depression not Parkinsons.


The only transdermal at this point is rotigotine patch. Rasagaline at this point is still just oral.
