take her for a second opinion to a psychologist (psychologists do not prescribe medication) I am rather anti-meds, as long as there are other avenues to seek. perhaps she just needs someone to talk to about her feelings. Is she honestly bipolar, probably... or could she just be hormonal? what teen isn't moody, what teen isn't happy one minute and pissy the next? lying stealing, cutting ISN'T good, but can she possibly just be depressed, or hanging with the wrong crowd? I would take her to see a psychologist.
