Epsom Salt for my Bloated fish

I'm treating my fish with antibiotics and you all have advised I should also use Epsom salts in his tank water 1-2 tsp per gallon.

Is it okay to add the epsom salt directly to his tank? I haven't been using it in conjunction with his tank changes yet and since his meds are in the tank I don't want to change the water just to add the epsom if possible.

you need to pre mix it in a gallon and mix it slowly (25% every 30-45 minutes). You will have to do a water change with it.

How much Epsom salt is okay to give my fish a treatment bath in? I read somewhere 3 Tablespoon a gallon but I am not sure.

His belly is now turning white. I finally added more Epsom to his treatment last so I don't know if it's starting to work or what. I'm worried the white belly is a bad sign. Please advise.
