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'll help my life-long love Heather Locklear with her drinking problem. To see Heather Locklear totally in the nude on purpose is my all-time #1 favorite way to see Heather Locklear. Heather Locklear better be ok. From George William Gockel

That explains it    

It's possible Heather has had a problem since her Tommy Lee days; I think he was more of a partier than Ritchie Sambora. But I also think age and seeing her mortality look back at her from the mirror everyday probably has something to do with this. She and I are about the same age, and I know it's no fun getting old, but she needs to realize that there are men out there who will still find her attractive; it's not all about what's on the outside. She always seemed to be a nice woman in interviews, she needs to see that beautiful woman that other people see. I wish her luck in overcoming this problem; keep Ava in mind Heather, she needs you.

Ya know what???? Heather is an " every girl ". She just likes to have fun and sometimes she over does it a bit. I think she's every bit as cool as she is hot. Party safe hon... I'll bet you're a blast to be around!!!

I was a member of the team, led by Joan Green, at the Wilhelmina Agency that found Heather in 1980. Heather was a great gal and came to us via a weekly open casting session. We really hit gold with her. Sorry to hear of any current problems. Best wishes Heather!

Such a beautiful lady and such a train wreck. Who's taking care of her daughter, maybe it's time for Richie to step up. I hope she gets it together for the sake of her daughter.
