The most common study events were somnolence (21%), headache (18%), insomnia (16%), sweating (16%), constipation (14%), dry mouth (11%), nausea (10%), and dizziness (10%). There were no statistically significant changes in mean systolic or diastolic blood pressure or pulse during the extension phase. However, a slight but significant decrease (1.4 kg in weight) was noted in weight at month 4 (p = 0.007)..."
