Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Subjects With at Least One Adverse Event During This Open-label Extension Study [ Time Frame: six years ]
    Adverse events are any untoward medical occurrences in a subject administered study treatment, whether or not these events are related to treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Subjects Who Withdrew From the Trial Due to an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: six years ]
    Adverse events are any untoward medical occurrences in a subject administered study treatment, whether or not these events are related to treatment.

  2. Mean Epworth Sleepiness Scale Score During the Open-label Extension [ Time Frame: Visit 10 (end of year 1), Visit 14 (end of year 2), Visit 18 (end of year 3), Visit 22 (end of year 4), Visit 26 (end of year 5), Visit 30 (end of year 6), End of Treatment (last study visit or early withdrawal visit) ]
    The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) is a self-administered questionnaire with 8 questions. The total ESS score is the sum of 8 item-scores and can range between 0 and 24. The higher the score, the higher the person's level of daytime sleepiness.
