My thoughts turn to the possible effects upon the nasal septum of "sniffing" pd drugs

absoooolutely AB. sniff sniff. Every mode of input has its problems. on the upside it would allow the input of pure dopamine rather the l-dopa (so no chemicals needed to stop peripheral conversion), it would be i think about 50x more effective (ie 1/50th of the volume) and possibly not as often. Perhaps it would be used in conjunction with the oral route. I'm not one for knocking the big pharms over research but this might be a real case where there is no incentive for investment.
