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.

This is really sad. She's always seemed like such a nice person and I hope she can get her life back on track, at least for the sake of her daughter. She has so much going for her. Hollywood really chews people up and spits them out. I hope she and Jack can work out their issues too...they're so cute together. Everyone's pulling for you Heather!!

Heather Tribute:


A while back Heather, Fabio and I worked-out at the same Hollywood gym.


Heather had a show and looked spectacular - the best I've ever seen ANYONE look:


-And in simple grey sweats.


If there's such a thing as perfect rear-end?


...and there is...


THAT was it.


Only thing that's changed now is no-current-show, etc.


Yet she's successfully raised Kid(s).


Romanced the Hottest Dudes in Hollywood.


And is a Sizzling Tabloid Star.


So I don't think that drugs and alcohol kill us per se.


As much as Monotany does.


When you're as Big and as Huge as Heather was/is:


Doing-monotany can be borderline excruciating.


On one hand you've been to the Rarified Top-of-the-Mountain.


...On the hand you're stuck in traffic - and on the 405...


She'll pull thru this and 4,000 more things b4 she's thru.


Living_Legends are Immortal - and Heather is One.


I'm seeing Charlie Sheen in her future ...

Mid-life crisis (although she's still beautiful) and a broken engagement...in a way I can't blame her, but it's not the solution. I've heard through someone that really knows her, that's she a sweet, sweet lady. Hold it together Heather, you've still got a bright future ahead of you.

I hope she's okay! Its far too easy to end up in the hospital after mixing painkillers and alcohol.

Hope she gets some friends and family around for a good long while. She NEEDS to transition into this thing called age. It's not easy when you're in the public eye and you're in a profession that focuses on looks. She's still talented and beautiful, but she's not 18 anymore, and so what. I wish her the best. Hope she gets some work soon n learns to focus on her kids.

It's "news" (more like gossip) outlets that stress a person. Every little thing anyone does is placed under the microscope. What do you expect from a person? Heather Locklear is not a media whore like most. She's no different from anyone who has scrapes in life. Look at yourself in the mirror.
