Should be:

It is important to know that selegiline / L-deprenyl / EMSAM does not produce an antidepressant response until the dosage is high enough to inhibit MAO-A in addition to the inhibition of MAO-B at lower dosages. Selegiline is selective for MAO-B at the low dosages used to treat Parkinson's, but not at the higher dosages necessary to produce an antidepressant effect. If selegiline were *specific* for MAO-B rather than *selective*, I doubt that it would work to treat depression.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
