Brief Answer:
Gastrocolic reflux

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Gastrocolic reflux is the medical term for this state. The person has to defecate after he eats anything. This cannot be normal all the time. This kind of gut disturbances are seen in Lactose intolarence, Inflammatory bowel disease, Irritable Bowel syndrome. The former two is mainly like allergy to some kind of food that the gut is not liking and it tries to immediately express its disinterest in the form of quick bowel movement. The latter is related to functional disorder where the doctors treat it related to mind, stress etc.

So it is not easy to suggest you medication for the above problem online, your husband needs a thorough history and examination by Gastroenterologist.

Hope this answer is informative and gives you a direction how to go about.

Brief Answer:
ORS is dependable

Detailed Answer:
It could be parasitic infection then. Just be on ORS lotion, one satchet in one litre of bottle and consume it.

Rest at home and if the things get worse you can take Tab IMMODIUM as rescue.

Thank you.
