  7. History of or ongoing intestinal ulceration, toxic megacolon or other toxic colitis.
  8. History of upper gastrointestinal disorder (e.g., active ulcer, pyloric stenosis or other cause of gastric retention, gastroparesis, or ileus).

  11. Moderate to severe dehydration during the screening period.
  12. Prior history of epileptic reaction, convulsions, or seizures.
  13. Any clinically relevant neurological events with or without association with hyponatremia during the screening period.
  14. Serum creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), potassium, or sodium outside normal limits during the screening period.

  18. Any clinically relevant abnormal findings in medical history, physical examination, vital signs, electrocardiogram (ECG), clinical chemistry, hematology, coagulation, or urinalysis at screening which in the opinion of the investigator(s), might put the participant at risk because of his/her participation in the trial.
