Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic profile of steady-state pharmacokinetics [ Time Frame: 5 to 8 timepoints at the end of weeks 1, 3, and 5. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clearance, volume of distribution, area under the curve over the dosing interval, maximum observed plasma concentration and trough plasma concentrations


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety parameters [ Time Frame: Subjects will be followed until the end of titration, an expected average of 5 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Incidence of adverse events, clinical laboratory parameters, ECG parameters, vital signs, monitoring of bladder function and CNS syndrome

  • Seizure frequency [ Time Frame: Subjects will be followed until the end of titration, an expected average of 5 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Estimate of systemic exposure to the n-acetyl metabolite [ Time Frame: 5 to 8 timepoints at the end of weeks 1, 3, and 5. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetic parameters [ Time Frame: 5 to 8 timepoints at the end of weeks 1, 3, and 5. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to maximum concentration and half life at steady-state
