Yes, I have used this method quite often in the past, it was standard treatment when I was working at the store. Feeding a few pieces of the salt will help resolve the issue faster. The epsom salt will help to dispell the air bubble(s) from the swim bladder faster if they are injested instead of just added to the water. I will have to recheck what exactly it is in the epsom salt that does the trick, but its effective, fast, and safe so long as it's only a few pieces that you feed and a small amount added to the water. Too much of a good thing is also no good.
aww i'm sorry to hear that Take all of this into account though with your other goldfish. Soak your fish food before feeding them and occasionally feed some chopped up peas. Having worked in fish stores, goldfish get swim bladder disease more than any other fish it seems and its because of their unusual biology and feeding behaviors.
