6mg/24 Emsam = 6mg oral selegiline

The thing is, most of the oral selegiline gets degraded before it ever gets into the main blood stream due to first-pass metabolism in the liver. Therefore, the resulting therapeutic blood level of an equivalent amount of Emsam is much, much higher. I don't happen to know the equivalency.
