internal parasite medication

My pleco is thin, I haven't seen him eat in a week, he's lethargic for the most part and his fecal deposits are thin, stringy and white. I need someone to recommend an internal parasite medication (after extensive inquiry, I believe its internal, possibly a worm type). I tried petco but they only had external treatments, which I bought anyways because I'm desperate to save my little buddy. All the local petshops have slowly closed around my area, so I'm ordering online. Can someone recommend a broad spectrum internal parasite medication? I've read some, like jungle, have eatable treatments, but I would prefer to go with something else. I've dropped wafers in every few days, but he will not eat them, nor do I see him cleaning the tank, plants, etc..

thanks for any suggestions, very much appreciated.

Thank you for the reply, thank you very much.

Had to act fast though and had no replies.

I went ahead and ordered Seagrams Metro, think that will help?

his eye looks like this:

I'm getting aquarium salt tomorrow, as the eye I think is bacterial. It is something horrible though, wiped out my entire tank before I knew there was a problem. I've tried everything. Finally the white feces made me investigate parasites, which is what I believe this is. Also had fin rot, but I treated that and it seems to have subsided.

Thanks again for your reply, it goes a long way.
