In brief: That's a toughie

Get informed about the side-effects.
Try to inform your friend of the consequences. Remain supportive and use tough love as necessary. Maybe a consultation with an addiction specialist would be appropriate.

In brief: Talk about it

Have a heart to heart talk with them about my medical concerns, and if possible let his primary care doctor know what is going on as well.
