- Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events, Adverse Drug Reactions, and Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: for 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The aim of this Post Marketing Surveillance (PMS) was to obtain safety data with treatment of pramipexole in Parkinson's disease patients with depressive symptoms. The percentage of participants with adverse events, adverse drug reactions, and serious adverse events are presented.
- Clinical Global Impression of Improvement [ Time Frame: for 12 weeks after initiation of the treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Investigators evaluation of the Parkinson's disease (PD) symptoms on the Clinical Global Impression (CGI) with 5 categories (very much improved, much improved, minimally improved, no effect, and unassessable).
- Mean Change From Baseline in Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Part III Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 12 weeks (or at the time of discontinuation) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Part III of the UPDRS contains the clinician-scored motor evaluation, and includes 14 individual items each scored from 0 (Normal) to 4 (Extreme dysfunction). The total score ranged from 0 to 56. A negative change in the Part III total score indicates improvement.
- Mean Change From Baseline in Beck's Depression Inventory (BDI) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 12 weeks (or at the time of discontinuation) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The degree of severity in depressive state are scored between 0-63 in BDI. A decrease in the score means improvement.
- Mean Change From Baseline in UPDRS (Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale) Part I Item 3 Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 12 weeks (or at the time of discontinuation) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale Part I Item 3 assesses the participant for symptoms of depression. Item 3 scores range from 0 (None) to 4 (Sustained depression with suicidal thoughts or intent). A higher score indicates more severe depression symptoms. A negative change in the item 3 score indicates improvement.
- Mean Change From Baseline in Modified Hoehn & Yahr Rating Scale [ Time Frame: After 12 weeks or at the time of discontinuation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]This scale is an investigator-completed assessment of the degree of complications arising from Parkinson's disease. The scale ranges from 0 (No signs) to 5 (Bedridden). A negative change in the Yahr rating scale indicates improvement.
