I have two discus fish and they have waste strining behind them and one fish is actually reacting quite badly. I have been doing water changes and treating them with and internal bacterial infections medication that is supposed to work;however, it is not. Any advice from any experts out there

If it is still eating, try some medicated food. You can also soak some food in pure garlic juice. This is supposed to enhance the fish's appetite, and repel any future parasites.

Make sure your water parameters are correct, you don't want a sick fish suffering even more with higher levels of ammonia or nitrite.  also make sure your temp is around 30 degrees celcius - about 82 -84 farenheit. keep the water clean like you're doing. Someone else might know what good meds there are to help your fish.
