Paramedics and sheriff’s deputies responded to the actress’s Los Angeles area home around 2 p.m. and determined Locklear needed further medical attention.
Locklear, 50, was then taken by ambulance to the Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where she stayed overnight and is now said to be resting comfortably, with family by her side.
“She is in no danger and she’s going to be just fine,” her parents Bill and Diane Locklear said in a statement issued by the hospital.
According to TMZ, Locklear's family wants her to check in to a medical rehab facility as soon as she's released from the hospital ... but Heather is resisting.
Locklear was discharged from Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, Calif., at around 5 p.m. on Friday, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
"She's fine, she was mobile, she was walking, she was dressed, she was talkative and she'll have follow-up care through her personal physicians," a spokeswoman said.
"Her parents wanted her fans to know this was not a suicide attempt and that she's doing really well and very good," the rep told reporters.
