This is an open-label, multicenter, non-interventional, prospective observational study. we collect the safety information of pramipexole over 12w treatment. Parkinson disease patients with different severity who have already used pramipexole could be observed in this study. In the whole observation period, treatment decision was determined by physician and patient completely. The safety endpoint is AE(Adverse Event), SAE(Serious Adverse Event), patient withdraw, laboratory test.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of AE/SAE [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The percentage of adverse events or serious adverse events occurring under Pramipexole mono- or combination therapy with other medication in this study.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Patient Global Impression(PGI) at Visit 1(Baseline) and Visit 3(at the End of Study) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Visit 1) and 12 weeks (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patient Global Impression (PGI) scale, ranging from 1 (excellent) to 7 (extremely poor), including 1(excellent), 2(very good), 3(good), 4(no change), 5(poor), 6(very poor) and 7(extremely poor).

  • The Dosage Related Information of Pramipexole at Baseline [ Time Frame: baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    At enrollment, the distribution of patients in 3 pramipexole dosage categories.

  • The Dosage Related Information of Pramipexole at the End of Study [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    At the end of study, the distribution of patients in 3 pramipexole dosage categories.
