Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) Responder Rate at End of Study [ Time Frame: End of Randomized treatment period (11 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary efficacy parameter was the PGIC responder rate, defined as the percentage of patients who rated themselves as "very much improved" or "much improved" (ie, having a score of 1 or 2 on the 7-point scale) for the PGIC at end of study (Visit 6 or Early Termination) compared to Visit 1.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Visual Analog Scale (VAS) 1-week Pain Recall at End of Study [ Time Frame: Baseline (0 weeks) and End of Randomized Treatment Period (11 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The secondary efficacy measure was the change from Visit 2 (Week 0) in the 1-week pain recall at Visit 6 (Week 11) or End of Study, measured using a 100-mm VAS assessment of pain (0 indicating no pain and 100 indicating the worst possible pain).
