This is a study designed to characterize the dermal response of DAYTRANA. Subjects will visit the study site over a period of approximately 14 weeks. Subjects will be titrated to an optimum dose of study treatment and assessed for safety and efficacy. Dermal response will be evaluated at each visit by the investigator. Subjects with high dermal response scores or scores that persist at the same application site and have no improvement after up to 4 evaluations (not to exceed a two week period) will be discontinued from the study and referred to a study specific dermatologist for specialized skin sensitivity skin patch testing.

- Dermal Reactions [ Time Frame: 7 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Dermal reactions were graded on a scale ranging from 0 (no irritation) to 7 (strong reaction) for observed findings of erythema, edema, papules, and vesicles.
