which symptoms of parkinson's disease will mirapex (pramipexole) help?

Early Parkinson's: Would use this for mild and early disease, usually, and it may help tremor, stiffness, and even gait, but likely will benefit for maximum of 2 years. Early usage may prevent later dyskinesias or at least delay need for l-dopa when disease is worse, can use for add on benefit, and may stabilize for a time.
