Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) [ Time Frame: baseline up to 5-8 days (double blind period) ]
    The numerical rating scale is the tool to assess pain level using a numerical rating scale. The primary outcome measurement is the average change of NRS score after double blind treatment between the two treatment groups. The NRS evaluates the pain level using number scale from 0 to 10. 0 means not painful and 10 means extremely painful. 1 to 3 is lightly pain, 4-6 is moderate pain and 7 to 10 is severe pain. There is no subscales used for NRS reporting.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Average Dose of Study Medicine Used During Double Blind Treatment Period [ Time Frame: baseline up to 5-8 days (double blind period) ]
    the average dose of study medicine used during double blind treatment period between the two treatment groups.

  2. Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) Change From Baseline to After Double Blind Period [ Time Frame: baseline up to 5-8 days (double blind period) ]
    The secondary outcome measurement is the change between BPI score at baseline and after completion of double blind treatment between the two treatment groups. The Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) rapidly assesses the severity of pain and its impact on functioning. This tool measures the worst/least pain in the passed 24 hours, and the average/current pain in last 24 hours. The scale is numerically from 0 to 10. 0 means not painful, 10 means extremely painful. The BPI is the average number of above 4 BPI Pain Items.

  3. Times of Breakthrough Pain Occurrence [ Time Frame: Within 8 days after baseline ]
    the times of breakthrough pain occurrence during double blind treatment phase between the two treatment groups

  4. Patient Assessments of Satisfaction for Pain Management [ Time Frame: baseline up to 19-22 days (open label treatment) ]
    the number of patients of satisfaction for pain management between the two treatment groups at the end of double blind treatment and the open label treatment period.

  5. Average Number of Titrations [ Time Frame: baseline up to 1-3 days(double blind period) ]
    the average times to change the dose in order to find the proper dose between two treatment groups

  6. Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) Change From Baseline to Open Label Treatment [ Time Frame: baseline up to 19-22 days (open label treatment) ]
    The secondary outcome measurement is the change of BPI score from baseline to the end of open label treatment between the two treatment groups. The Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) rapidly assesses the severity of pain and its impact on functioning. This tool measures the worst/least pain in passed 24 hours, and the average/current pain in last 24 hours. The scale is numerically from 0 to 10. 0 means not painful, 10 means extremely painful. The BPI is the average number of above 4 BPI Pain Items.

  7. the Total Dose of Rescue Medicine for Breakthrough Pain. [ Time Frame: baseline up to 22 days (double blind period) ]
    the total dose of rescue medicine for breakthrough pain during double blind phase between the two treatment groups

  8. Degree of Pain Relief Within 24hrs After Treatment [ Time Frame: baseline up to 5-8 days (double blind period) ]
    Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) Change From Baseline to After Double Blind Period. The BPI is the average number of above 4 BPI Pain Items. For the degree of pain relief within 24hrs after treatment, 0 means zero relief and 100 means completely relief with unit of percentage(%).

  9. Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) Change From Baseline to Open Label Treatment [ Time Frame: baseline up to 19-22 days (open label treatment) ]
    For the degree of pain relief within 24hrs after treatment, 0 means zero relief and 100 means completely relief with unit of percentage(%).
