3. Recent history (within 1 year) of mental illness, drug addiction, drug abuse, or alcoholism.

4. A hematocrit value of ≤ 33.0% for females and ≤ 37.0% for males.

5. Donation of > 500 mL of blood in the past 8 weeks prior to study drug dosing or difficulty in donating blood.

6. Receipt of an investigational drug within the 4 weeks prior to study drug dosing.

7. Currently taking any systemic prescription medications, excluding hormone contraceptives, within the 7 days prior to study dosing or over-the-counter medication within 3 days of study dosing.

8. Regular smoking of more than 5 cigarettes weekly or the regular daily use of nicotinecontaining products beginning 3 months before study drug administration through the final evaluation.

9. Female subjects who were lactating or had a positive pregnancy test at Screening and prior to each of the treatment periods.

10. Alcohol, grapefruit beverages or foods, caffeine, or xanthine beverages or foods beginning 48 hours before each study drug administration through the last pharmacokinetic (PK) sample of each treatment period. Such restricted items included coffee, tea, iced tea, Coke®, Pepsi®, Mountain Dew®, chocolate, brownies, etc.

11. Regular use of any drugs known to induce or inhibit hepatic drug metabolism (examples include barbiturates, carbamazepine, rifampin, phenylhydantoins, phenothiazines, cimetidine, omeprazole, macrolides, imidazoles, fluoroquinolones) within 30 days prior to study drug administration.

12. Positive test results for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), and hepatitis C antibody at Screening.

13. Positive test results for drugs of abuse or pregnancy at Screening and prior to each study drug dosing period.
