Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Response of Very Convenient or Somewhat Convenient [ Time Frame: Day 11 ]
    Participant reported outcome questionnaire was the assessment of participant's convenience with drug treatment based on following categories: very convenient or somewhat convenient and not convenient or not at all convenient. Value of 1 was reported if participant answered 'very convenient' or 'somewhat convenient' and 0 if participant answered 'not convenient' or 'not at all convenient'.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Compliance With Prescribed Treatment Regimen [ Time Frame: Day 11 ]
    Percent compliance with the prescribed treatment regimen was calculated as 100 multiplied by (number of tablets taken by the participant divided by number of tablets prescribed).

  • Percentage of Participants Who Were 100 Percent Compliant With Prescribed Treatment Regimen [ Time Frame: Day 11 ]
    Percent compliance with the prescribed treatment regimen was calculated as 100 multiplied by (number of tablets taken by the participant divided by number of tablets prescribed). Value of 1 was reported if percent compliance equals to 100, and 0 if percent compliance was non-missing and less than 100.
