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.

Her honey-pot finally collapsed after years of drunken rocker-abuse. Stay strong, Heather. We love you.

When she was married to Richie Sambora you never heard a peep about either of them. Ever since they split it has been nothing but bad news coming from their camps. Her's more than his. Sad she's in so much pain.

This is how you end up if you were stupid enough to have sex with Scott Baio when you were young.

Heather Locklear is a class act. She's in pain or something right now-but she's conducted herself as a pro and deserves her privacy. Feel better, Heather!!!

When are these celebrities going to figure out that drugs and alcohol just make you old faster...or dead? It definitely isn't cool!
