I am so sorry your friend has had these trials it does sound as if he needs some further specialised care, he has to get to the point where he wants to get help, first step is talking about it even to you, it could be his meds that make him sleep during the day, the Doctor would be the one to change the dose or change the Med, until you can get him to accept and get more help from a therapist all you can do is talk to him ,be there for him.There may be others here with more ideas to help him, you could also post this on the Expert Doctor Forums.there is a mental health forum,Good luck
