Her problems now seem to be: (1) anger: she is often angry, at small things, and once angry can't get 'un-angry' for days. (2) concentration: she cannot concentrate for more than a few minutes at a time, again, that's not our girl. (3) hard to care about others: she claims she just doesn't feel the same compassion for others that she did before, and that worries her a lot . . . she worries she'll not be able to form real friendships. (4) depression: ongoing.

Based on what you have stated, it is time for an in depth psychological evaluation. This does not sound like a "normal" teen development issue. You mentioned you have seen "cracks" in her before. What was done at that time? I am not a doctor, but a retired psych nurse. It does not sound, based on what you have stated, that the medication is working effectively. Please seek another opinion.
We've noticed that her drug seeking and poor decision making appear to revolve largely around the menstrual cycle. Very angry when her period begins, depressed after, then OK for a couple of weeks.

Kids do not tell us everything either cause they are scared or otherwise. It could be a health issue causing all of this. I hope this helps.
