    • 2 days out of 14 days of run-in
    • 3 days out of 15 to 21 days of run-in
    • 4 days out of 22 or more days of run-in
  11. Unable to comply with study procedures including non-compliance with diary completion (ie, <70% subject completion of diary assessments in the last 7 days preceding Visit 2 or 4-times daily dosing, <80% compliance during the placebo run-in period).
  12. Historical or current evidence of a clinically significant disease
  13. Cancer not in complete remission for at least 5 years before Visit 1
  14. Hospitalization for psychiatric disorder or attempted suicide within 1 year of Visit 1
