Your love is like a drug. Then again, so is Oxycodone.

When I sleep poorly, I've noticed that sex or a percocet will help me feel better. What brain chemicals are being produced by these activities, and how can I replicate them in a healthy way?

Note: I took percocet while passing a kidney stone and noticed I could stay up pretty late and still feel ok the next day. I am 40-something, and my sleep is kind of poor, but I don't qualify for a cpap machine. Generally, when I miss sleep, feel like crap, and start to get a minor migraine around 1pm. Excedrin with caffeine helps a little, as does the aforementioned morning sex.
