Wow, thanks for the warning!
I didn't realize it had such a negative affect on bettas!
But now that you say it that does make a lot of sense.
I'll avoid it like the plague! I'm never going to use any "fix" meds on my bettas ever!
If needs absolutely must I'll shop around for something safer.
I got a feeling he'll heal up just fine on his own though (:
I'm going to give clean water and stress coat a go first and see how that goes.
I'll leave meds as the last resort.

He's looking much better already now he's had some food and a good swim around his tank (:
He looked very dull and depressed in his glass and didn't do anything, now he's bombing about and making bubble nests on his thermometer lol! (I was quite surprised when he started doing that XD)
I'm so pleased with him!
