Do Parkinson's Drugs Like Ropinirole Help With Fatigue?

Do Parkinson's Drugs Like Ropinirole Help With Fatigue?

My most aggravating problem is the fatigue and shortness of breath I have been having for a year now. Been to GP, heart, and lung docs, they can't find anything wrong so must be the Parkinson's(?).

I use Macuna Pruriens and I have had good results. Powder form works better than pill.
