Here is your answer friend;
Diphenoxylate with atropine combination, a synthetic opiate-like drug, works by slowing the normal forward movement (known as peristalsis) of the intestines, so that they can better absorb water from the liquid stool. This help make the stool more solid.
I'm sorry for the person if you know them. My Hother passed from Cancer.
