Just change the oil and filter and you will be fine.

Some oil treatment/cleaners are only meant to be used for a few days, then you are suppose to change the oil.
So generally you add the treatment/cleaner just before you plan to change the oil.

And the treatment and the performance issues could be unrelated.

Let the engine heat up to operating temp before changing the oil.
