Manziel’s representative, Denise Michaels, told TMZ, “It seems like he had a reaction to an adjustment in his prescription. He’s fine and headed home.”

Midday Tuesday, Manziel posted to social media, writing, “Thank you everyone for your concern and kind messages. Unfortunately I had a reaction to an increased dosage in Lithium which I take for my Bipolar disorder.”

Manziel revealed earlier this year that he’s been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and is receiving treatment for the condition.
