  1. The answers in the patient logs were coded accordingly: If there were one or more “yes” in the 16 weeks of registration, the answer was coded yes. If there were one or more “no”, and no entries answered “yes”, we coded it as no. If there were one or more not applicable/don’t know, and no entries with yes or no, we coded it as not applicable/don’t know. The table includes only patients with at least one entry (57 excluded). Due to missing data, the numbers do not add up to 240
