Dechlorinators effect on medications?

What are the effects of dechlorinators on medications?I'm using Tetra Bettasafe as a dechlorinator for PWC water.Will it negate medications added a few days after?

As long as your medication isn't dependent on chlorine or heavy metals, you should be fine.

Exactly.

I know some ich medications are copper-based, so there is the potential for problems there. But other than that, most medications don't have anything in them that should interact with dechlorinators.

Dechlorinators only last 24 hrs or so, so unless you are mixing dechlor directly with the meds, you don't need to worry too much about interactions.
