Welcome to e health forum.

A severe diarrhea could be due to a bacterial infection in the intestines.

Proper treatment may need antibiotics and supportive medications to clear the infections. In such situations antidiarrheals like imodium may not help. Actually they reduce the intestinal motility and can worsen the condition.

You may consult your doctor, who can examine you and provide proper assessment and treatment for the underlying condition.

In the mean time, you can use probiotic supplements and proper fluid intake to control your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
