Salt to the rescue!
Last night after I got home I changed 50% of the water right away (many days of medicating left the water a little off). As I was filling hte tank back up I used a little less dechlorinator then usual (enough that chloramine goes away, but takes a little longer) and added a full box of aquarium salt (tablespoon per 5 gallons).
After letting the tank settle and to let the salt disolve I added quickcure again. 140 drops this time (a little less then at its peak, I didn't trust that I wouldnt poison the fish). This morning I looked at the 5 (of 7) clowns I could see and could not see a single Ick spot anywhere.
So far so good, looks like were back on the mend.
