Continue to do water changes about 20-40% every second day until levels begin to stay in check. Don't change everyday if your tank is not cycled you will only prolong the issues by not allowing the bacterial to build to the level required by your bio load.

I'd do daily 50% water changes until you see no more nitrites. Contrary to popular belief, there is little bacteria at all in the water column. Most of it will be in the substrate and in the filter media, so large water changes will NOT affect your bacteria colonies at all. You need to keep doing them to help from harming your fish- nitrites are very toxic and harmful to your fish.

Prime can also help knock down nitrItes in an emergency. Read the label, but I think it says up to 5 times the normal dose.
