Melafix ok to use with Purigen?

I'm about to use Melafix in my 125g planted tank to treat for bacterial infection. Should I remove the Purigen from my filter? It only says to remove carbon but i don't use it since its a planted tank.

The purigen will pull out the meds, so I would remove it.

I remove any and all chemical media when using meds in a tank.
