A reaction to taking a new drug or medication that is so abrupt and paradigm-breaking that one immediately realizes that life, and one's perception of it, has been fundamentally and irreversibly changed. Named so in analogy to a religious experience, and as a portmanteau of "pharmaceutical" and "Damascene conversion".
