Question Is it safe to use Epsom salt on young Bettas?

I just bought a little tiny female who has some swim bladder problems and doesn't look too good , but I can tell that with the right care she can and will make it . I want to dissolve some epsom salt into her water, but I'm worried because she's about an inch long, so very young. So is it safe to add the Epsom salt? Also, is it safe to use aquarium salt on young Bettas? Thanks!

I have safely used Epsom and aquarium salt on very young fry when needed....

I would start with Epsom salt 1tsp/gal and increase as needed for buoyancy issues and if you have access to live food-I would use that instead of too much processed food.
