Is she having regular visits with a psychologist? Something like this is about more than putting her on medication and hoping it will stop. Cutting is about more than depression, it is about pain. You need to educate yourself more on the reasons behind why people cut and also ensure she is in some kind of therapy that is helping her to modify her behaviour to find new ways to deal with the emotions that cause her to cut.
