“Friends” actor Matthew Perry, who has previously been treated for alcohol and prescription drug addiction, is back home after a brief hospital stay due to what his publicist called a bad reaction to prescription medicine.

Perry, 35, was taken to an area hospital last week and stayed overnight for doctor-ordered observation, publicist Lisa Kasteler said Sunday. She didn’t provide details.

“He’s home. He’s fine,” she said.

In 1997, Perry voluntarily checked into a treatment center to battle an addiction to prescription painkillers.
