Retrieve parameters for function in a compiled DLL

Is there any way to retrieve parameters of non-documented function, residing in a DLL, not having the source code of the DLL?
DLL is probably written in VC++

The only way I can think of would be reverse engineering the DLL.
Actually, some exported DLL functions have a @x in their name at the end, where x is the total number of bytes the DLL takes as parameters.

Again, this is not really much help, but I am going to recommend just searching more and more for the inofficial documentation of the function. Or reverse engineer (debug/disassemble) the DLL.
