It may be something in the medication. Can you list the ingredients? I just went to API's site and they do not even list this product.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Plants will be harmed by those medications. Major water changes, then normal fertilization/light and hopefully the plants will rebound. I can't say if they will or not.
