Thank you for posting your query.

Dicorate is a good medicine for epilepsy and bipolar disorder. However, it has no effect on sleep.

If your freind has depression and sleep problems, he may require additional medications such as antidepressants and sleeping pills. Please discuss these issues withi his doctor.
