You obviously need the support and assistance of professionals at this point. If your friend has been prescribed psychotropic medication over the past month the dosage,or indeed the medication itself, requires review. If she has not yet been formally assessed this is your goal. If she refuses to be assessed by psychiatric professionals perhaps you could arrange a joint appointment with your genaral physician to discuss the recent difficulties you are both having. Airing the situation in a formal arena would permit the doctor to hopefully assess whether or not to initiate the psychiatric assessment process.If your friend has little or no insight into the situation, and it is not yet considered severe enough for the psychiatric services to insist they assess her, you may have to consider your position in the ralationship at this time. If you feel that your safety may be compromised you may have to offer support from a different position. If you think your friend's personal safety is at risk you could try contacting her general physician at the time when she is in obvious difficulty in an attempt to initiate assistance for her.
What does appear to be the case, without meaning to be alarmist, is that her behaviour is escalating to the point where she may pose a risk to her own safety or yours, and requires professional assessment.
You have provided as much support as you can so please do not think you haven't. Her presentation now needs to be assessed for approriate professional assistance to be offered. No one can expect you to do more than you are.
I wish you both well.
