8:00 PM PT:
A hospital spokesperson tells TMZ, Heather was awake and responsive when she arrived today -- and she is currently responding well to treatment. According to the spokesperson, Heather is doing much better now and doctors are hopeful she will be released tomorrow.

We're also told Heather's parents are currently with the actress inside the hospital.

--------------------------------------

Heather Locklear
was taken to the hospital by ambulance Thursday afternoon after taking a dangerous mix of prescription drugs and alcohol ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned ... Locklear's sister called 911 at 2:05 PM PT fearing Heather was in danger.

The fire department, along with the Ventura County Sheriff's Department responded. Paramedics examined Heather and determined she needed to be hospitalized.

This is not the first time Locklear has had a medical emergency where 911 responded. In 2008, her doctor was concerned she may have overdosed on prescription meds. He called 911 and the operator described the situation as a "suicide attempt." It turned out to be a false alarm.

Locklear recently called off her engagement to Jack Wagner.

Heather was at the Lakers game Tuesday night ... hanging with a friend, who was playfully trying to take away her beverage. It's unclear if the drink contained alcohol.

I agree with a previous poster. I have a sense that it may have to do with her getting older. Obviously there is much more to it that that and I obvsiously do not know her or what goes on her life. I will say that she always had the class to try and stay out of all the papparazzi and media BS that goes on or seems to use media to seek attention

I wish her all the best and hope she figures a way to recover and live a sober productive life. I say this from experience. Fortunately for me, my substance abuse was not high and it stemmed from me never really dealing with my core issue which is anxiety and depression, She does seem to suffer from anxiety and depression, and there are ways to deal and live a wonderful life. I and others are living proof.

"It's unclear if the drink contained alcohol."

Of course the drink contained alcohol. Heather Locklear's blood is constantly about 25% alcohol.

People, just let her OD and the world will be done with her!

Heather will always be stunning in my book and who knows what's been going on in her personal life. I cannot believe the ignorance of some of these posters. Wow..I'm really glad none of you are my neighbors! Show some respect for the woman...she obviously is having some problems and there is no need to be disrespectful to her!

Please let these bleach blond bimbos to their own destruction. And keep us out of the know. If she want's to drink or / and medicate herself to death - let her.

I absolutely love Heather and wish her the best. I cannot believe some of the most ignorant comments on here and I'm certainly glad you are not my neighbors! She obviously has a lot of personal problems going on in her life right now and hope she gets the help she needs. Carl...I believe it was her ambulance you saw today!
