Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in the frequency of headache days [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in the frequency of severe headache days [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
