It must be scary having your daughter doing something which is putting herself at risk.
Sounds like you are doing the right things with trying to control access and getting medical help.
I can't add a personal anecdote as we never faced this with out kids and hopefully with time and some help it will only be a temporary thing in your family.

That must be really distressing for you. Certainly this kind of behaviour can occur when a child expresses some depressive symptoms. You've been really proactive with this to go the doctor, commence medication and already notice a positive change. Well done!
