You need to be very careful.

Some products contain ingredients that may damage the head gasket and/or the hoses.

You will also need fresh engine oil and a new filter as well as new coolant.

Run a week or so and change the oil and filter again.
If the coolant looks to have any oil in it, do a change there also.

Did you physically check that your coolant isn't vanishing, or are you just not seeing puddles under the car?
