What causes rolling of eyes to the back of head?

MY DAUGHTER (49 YEARS OLD) WILL ROLL HER EYES BACK IN HER HEAD SO THAT ONLY THE WHITES ARE SHOWING. HER PSYCHIATRIST TOLD US THAT IT S BECAUSE SHE S SLEEPY OR TIRED. SHE USED TO DO THIS ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO AND HAS NOW STARTED AGAIN. I THOUGHT IT WAS PERHAPS ONE OF HER PSYC MEDS THAT WAS CAUSING IT....THANK YOU.
