According to U.K. paper The Sun, paramedics found 33-year-old Meyers "slumped on the floor" ... but he refused treatment for 30 minutes before cops arrived and convinced the actor to go to the hospital.

Officials confirm that officers were dispatched to Meyers' home -- but would NOT say if Meyers was trying to take his own life.

Meyers -- who has been in and out of rehab FIVE times -- was released from the hospital early Wednesday morning.

UPDATE: A source close to Meyers tells TMZ, the actor was NOT trying to kill himself, but had fallen off the wagon.

Maybe Jonny is depressed more than usual after his ex, Reena Hammer talked rubbish about him & his family, making fun of him heartlessly. Sending love & light.

I am sad to hear about this. This man is a very talented actor. I loved him on The Tudors. I hope he gets the help he needs.

Who is this?? Why do we care? Oh, yeah- he is a nobody actor, good for you- you set out accomplish something and yet you failed again just like your acting career. And who are you again? That's right you will not be missed- freaking D-List actors, what are you gonna do with 'em?

His Steerpike made the BBC's adaptation of Gormenghast and I don't think I've seen anything where his acting was bad. I suppose as long as he can keep up the acting and avoid serious self-harm (Richard Burton, Oliver Reed, Richard Harris etc.) it could carry on until it doesn't. Tragic, and I hope he gets better.
