Doctor:Ok. The situation you are speaking of is called a Gastro-Colic reflex. Its quite normal in most people

Doctor:try and cut back a bit as it will help decrease the urge to go
User:any medicine ?
Doctor:There are no good medicines that will cause you to slow things down. If you have very bad diarrhea and are going 10-15 times a day.. then they would hospitalize you and give you a medication that is similar to a narcotic.
