Exclusion Criteria

  12. . Major psychiatric disorder including, but not limited to, dementia, bipolar disorder, psychosis, or any disorder that, in the opinion of the Investigator, requires ongoing treatment that would make study participation unsafe or make treatment compliance difficult.
  13. . History of clinically significant hallucinations during the past 6 months.
  14. . History of clinically significant impulse control disorder(s).
  15. . Dementia that precludes providing informed consent or would interfere with participation in the study.

  18. . Presence of canker or mouth sores in the 30 days prior to the initial Screening Visit (SV1), or other clinically significant oral pathology in the opinion of the Investigator. The Investigator should follow-up with an appropriate specialist on any finding, if indicated, before enrolling a patient into the study.
