I just went back and read where posted that your nitrate reading was 120 ppm. Is that correct??
If this was my tank (and it's not!) I'd do a 75 % water change, and use meds at half strength only.
Make sure the new fresh water going in is the same temp as the water in the tank. Your fish don't need any more stress and temp changes are stressful.
I just checked my Rid Ich+ bottle of medication and the label says, "Formaldehyde 4.26% (11.52 % formalin) and a zinc free chloride salt of malachite green.
This medication has always worked for me, without any fish loss. It seems the medication you picked up sounds very similar. Good Luck.
