Default Insomnia

My friends has a serious case of insomnia. He hasn't had anything above 3 hours of sleep since months. He has been consuming Tylenol and sleeping pills like candy. I seriously would like to help him, but I don't know how. Im thinking of giving him placebo treatment...
Is there anyway of helping him?

What would you be giving him to cause a placebo effect? You don't want to give him something that he ends up downing and overdosing or something.

I know. I asked what you would give him. And why aren't the sleeping pills working?

Too much sugar will keep him awake and if he's smart dough wouldn't fool him. Tell his parents?

His parents know and they wont let him see a doctor. I have no clue why.
Hes actually changed a lot and not very aware of many things, so dough just might work until hes back to his old self

You really think he'll take pills you give him? Take that kid to a damn doctor.

That's really serious. I used to have insomnia, and I just took Melatonin.
If he's as unaware of things as you said, he should fall for dough.

It wouldn't. If the other pills wouldn't work, what would make him think those would work?
He probably is negative towards the success of medication, so he probably will just believe they wont work, which sort of cancels out the placebo effect.

he's depressed, but he wasn't very depressed before he had insomnia.
His grades are dropping and that is also what might be depressing him.
@ryan thats why its placebo.
Also, if he trusts me enough, the dough thing could work

Worth a shot.
But you should make them look more official than just dough pills.

No, I mean, make little indents of random letters to make it look like it means something.
