And I guess as a side effect of all the different medications he also can't sleep and is no longer able to get it up, so he has take sleeping pills and Viagra...dude is fucking 24 years olds, 24 fucking years old! I just don't understand why anyone would need that much shit, apparently he has been taking this many prescribed medications since early in high school. wtf.
I have this sneaking suspicion that kids that have been prescribed behavior altering drugs at young, formative ages - like ritalin for ADD - are going to end up like this. If there is any correlation, we're in for a tidal wave of fscked up friends like yours in the next few years...
That said, sorry about your friends' situation. I am so lucky, blessed actually, that I have no medical issues other than my own [stupid] self inflicted sports related ones.
