Duration of Tetracycline?

Could anyone advise on how long I can treat with tetracycline? My fish has pulled through a previous illness but now his fin rot seems to be accelerating. So we put him back on tetracycline and we are going to continue treatment for at least two rounds of the 4 days this time. Is there a limit of how many days we can do this without overdosing?
Thank you.

10-14 days, 50% daily water change & redose. The problem with antibiotics is too short of a duration for treatment, 4 days is a joke, 8 is barely adequate.
