  • Has a history of acute narrow-angle glaucoma
  • Has a medical condition including uncontrolled cardiac, pulmonary, renal, hepatic, or gastrointestinal disease that could interfere with the study, subject safety/safety monitoring, or is not stable despite current therapy
  • Subject has severe chronic cardio-respiratory disease or the need for ambulatory oxygen
  • Has had psychogenic, non-epileptic seizure(s) during or since the P261-401 study
