LOS ANGELES (AP) _ ``Friends'' actor Matthew Perry is back home after a brief hospital stay due to a bad reaction to prescription medicine.

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

``He's home. He's fine,'' she said.

Perry has previously been treated for alcohol and prescription drug addiction. Last week's hospitalization was unrelated to those incidents, Kasteler said.
