Beneficial Bacteria/Medicine

Hello,

When you medicate your tanks for ick with quickcure, does the benficial bacteria die? If it does die, I guess the nitrogen cycle is shot _ell and water changes are needed to compensate for the higher ammonia/nitrite level?

Is they a better medicine for ick?, I tried quickcure and my 3 loaches dies. (I tried 1/2 dose & 1/8 dose with no luck)
