Exclamation Urgent, seriously!!!

Please help, this is extremely serious and Ill cut short to the chase!

My Betta Fish is EXTREMELY ill and need help NOW! Ive been trying to help him with meds but it doesnt look like its working at all ):!

Symptoms:
- Swims on his side
- Will lay on his side on the gravel
- Lethratic
- isnt himself
- doesnt eat much

I dont know if his colour is faded, I jus cant notice it at all. His fins look extremely small now compared to before. My other fish died, Simba, but I believe he drowned...so it didnt occure to me that my other fish whom was with Simba could of MAYBE been sick even tho he doesnt look like he is!

Plz helpppp! Answer as quickly as you can ):

OK, maybe you should lower the water level so it's easier for him to get air so it isn't a long and tiring swim for air. If you have any decorations, try taking them out until he gets better. Sometimes decorations carry things in them from the pet shop for something. Make sure you clean his tank out to keep it clean! I hope he gets better. Just keep trying to figure out what is wrong with him, and please fill out the sticky that Tikibirds posted! It will help out a lot. Good luck!
