It's been about a month since I've gone on my own,so about once a week I drink this stuff! I poop in a few hours. Should I go see a doctor about this?
Yes you should as a healthy person goes daily as a rule. You should also look at your diet to see if it contains ANY fibre. It may be the result of some medication you are taking. I would be looking at a nice predictable laxative like Metamucil (psyllium husk fibre) where you can easily adjust the dosage. I'm not so much a fan of stool softeners or chemical type laxatives.
Try the metamucil for a week or so to see how it works for you (it is not expensive) if your symptoms persist it is important to see your doctor (he may be interested in stool color but don't take him a sample).
