Ask her.: And what were you doing looking into your girlfriend's purse, sir? Before you draw conclusions, i suggest that you ask her what the medications are for. A good relationship is after all based on trust.

Antipsychotics: Did she invite you to go through her purse? Antipsychotic medications were designed to treat psychosis but are used to treat a variety of different mental health conditions including sleep problems. Ask her.
