TMZ Sport first reported the news that he was hospitalized Humble, Texas.
"It seems he has a reaction to an adaptation of his prescription," said a Manziel representative, Denise Michaels to TMZ. "He's alright and went home."
Manziel, 25, was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, but after just two seasons, was out of league and the team played poor concerns eventually led to his career being dropped off.
He was arrested for domestic violence in 2016, but agreed to a counseling program to drop the fees.  However, he did make a comeback when he defeated the San Diego and Texas A & M Pro Days. He has participated in the Spring League, a camp for NFL hopefuls, to show their skills and attract the attention of scouts and coaches.
He has also taken steps to improve his off-field life, stop drinking and partying. In an interview, Manziel said he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had been treated for medications, although it is unclear whether this drug caused the response that led to his hospitalization.
"I take medication for bipolar therapy, and I try to make sure I do not fall back into some kind of depression, because I know where that leads me and I know how slippery a slope is for me," he said Good Morning America in February (h / t Jaclyn Hendricks's New York Post ). "At the end of the day I can not help but my wires are a bit different crossed I can not help my mental condition or the way I was created. "
