"Note to self: after working 85 hours in four days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion and seven paramedics might show up at your door," read the post.
"Hopefully they're cute. Otherwise it would be a real letdown."
Lohan's spokesman said the actress had been taking a nap and that producers called paramedics out of concern when she did not emerge from her room.
