Slow up here. Sounds like malnutrition to me. Sit tight on that medication first. Does he eat? How often are you feeding him? What are you feeding him?
If malnuritiion is what we are seeing, feed him twice a day, until you see him fatten up some. If you just got him from the LFS, i'm betting its cuz he hasn't been eating well. Feed the lilkes of Roamine Lettuce, Mysis Shrimp, Squid Chunks, Nori Sheets. The algae sheets should be fed to him at least 3-4 times a week.

Go your LFS and ask for some macroalgae they have been harvesting. I know mine keeps some under the DTs and it is full of reef bugs. In nature, Tangs get the nutrition they need from a diet of greens, like algae. But the algae in the wild has creatures living on it that the Tang ingests while eating the algae. This nutrition can be missing when putting a Tang on a specifically vegetarian diet.

Don't know much about saltwater fish but I can say Clout is really, really powerful stuff. Only use if you absolutely have to.
