What Is the Selegiline Transdermal Patch Used For?

Off-Label Uses of the Selegiline Transdermal Patch

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend the selegiline transdermal patch for something other than depression. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label uses of the selegiline transdermal patch, probably because it is a fairly new medication. Because the active ingredient of the selegiline transdermal patch (selegiline) has been used for many years in an oral form to treat Parkinson's disease, it might be expected that the patch could be used "off-label" as a treatment for Parkinson's disease.
