Having constant diarrhea, nausea. What could cause this?

I have had diarrhea for several months. My doctor prescribed medication for high cholesteral in September. It has been changed to a different medication and I stopped taking it 10 days ago. My diarrhea is worse. Initially by noon it would subside, now it is constant. I do not have nausea. What could cause this?
