There are some that supposedly help, but more important is to stop the other fish from nipping them. I don't have much experience with those chemicals.

Move the gouramis to a different tank, or try adding more hiding places; having a very densely planted tank should help.

What species of gouramis are they, and what fish are picking on them?

I've been told that mixing gouramis and bettas is not a very good idea. It's like putting male bettas with male bettas; it's inevitable that they will fight.
