Augmentation is when a DA medication such as mirapex or ropinerole ceases to be effective. The symptoms come earlier in the day and often start to affect the arms, shoulders, other parts of the body.

If you go to the Augmentation Forum there is a lot of information to be found.

This is the link.

Eventually it is necessary to come off the DA medication and find another treatment - of which there are several.
