    Sir please upload video on topical dosage form i.e, difference between cream ,gel , ointment ,etc, please


    Am confused I studied that. Selegiline blocks conversion of dopamine into 3-mt by inhibiting MAO-B, While tolcapone blocks conversion of dopamine to DOPAC by inhibiting central COMT.
    Does This means that MAO-B which is predominant, converts dopamine to 3-MT and COMT Converts dopamine into DOPAC.
