Is Epsom and Aquarium Salt okay for concurrent use?

My betta is extremely bloated. When I went to Petsmart tonight the manager in the fish department suggested Aquarium Salt because she hadn't heard of using Epsom Salt. I put the aquarium salt in his bowl, but now I realize that was a mistake since his problems are internal. Can I add epsom salt to his bowl even though I already have aquarium salt in it? Will that hurt him?

Thanks so much for your time!!!

Thanks, Perseusmom!

Friendlyfishies - Apparently it helps when betta's are bloated. I just went out to get some and I'll let you know if it works! My poor guy is not doing so well.
