Dosage of Pimafix and Melafix together

The regular dosage of either pima or mela is 5ml per 10 gallons. When treating with both pima and mela, should the dosage of each be 1/2 (i.e., 2.5ml)?

I would go the full dosage of both. I don't think the standard dose is very toxic to fish, my fish at least (fancy goldfish) tolerated a quadruple dose of both before starting to freak out.

I would use another medication in conjunction with the pimafix and melafix though, they don't seem to do very much on their own in my experience.
