Carbon to remove medicine from water

Hello I am currently treating my water with maracyn plus and once treatment is completed, I plan on adding a carbon insert temporarily to my fluval power filter to remove any remaining medication in the water. My question is how long do I leave the carbon in the filter? I do not run carbon as I have heard some cons about using it full-time. I current have the foam insert in addition to 2 biomax inserts.

Add it with your next water change after treatment is complete and leave it for about a week.

Assuming you're doing regular weekly water changes, remove it when you do the next weekly change.

Hope your fish respond well to treatment.

Thank you very much. Yeah Mr. Hatchet Fish is doing a lot better. On 2nd treatment. One more to go and hopefully he keeps showing improvement.
