I hate to be the bearer of bad news but once they start swimming bad and stop eating, it's usually the end of the road. Sorry for your loss.

I've been here before. It kind of looks like she has no control? Sorry mate, but she will probably not survive.

Hope, yes, probability....no. We would need to know what meds you are dosing and what parasites you think it has? Push come to shove, 50%+ water change never hurts.
