8 month old reflux

My 8 month old daughter has reflux issues and has a hard time burping. I started her on Nat Phos 6x during each feed which seems to have resolved her reflux issues while she is on it. However when I stop giving the medicine to her, the reflux seems to come back. Please note that this has not helped with her burping issue.
I was looking for advice on how long are babies typically on this medicine. I did not want to keep giving to her if there was an adverse effect. She has been on it for 2 weeks now. I started tapering after first 4 days because the reflux had stopped and she started spitting up slightly the next day itself.
I had received this treatment information from a retired member of this forum but I am having a hard time getting follow up advice from him which is why I am posting this here.
I appreciate your insight. Thanks!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Before suggesting any med. I would like to know if she is breastfed or on other type of milk. By now I suppose you have started some solid food as well.
Does she throw out just milk or curd like matter. Please give all details.

She was exclusively breastfed until 3 weeks back. Since last 3 weeks I have started moving her to formula. She has 4 milk feedings a day (3 formula and 1 breastmilk).
She would throw up her food or milk - no curd. With burping, we have to pat her hard for a few minutes to get a burp (especially on her left side)

We have started solids since 6 months - she is on 3 meals a day (pureed fruits, vegetables and lentils). The throwing up does not seem to bother her but I do think she experiences some heartburn at night because she wakes up crying in her sleep at times and giving some water or putting her head on an incline seems to help her.

I should also add to prior to 8 months, she seemed to have sensitivity to cow's milk. I had to eliminate all dairy products from my diet. If I consumed dairy and fed her, she would get eczema right away and colic. I retried cow milk based formula 3 weeks back and it looked like it is not affecting her as much as it did before which is why I continued to give it to her. She has mild redness but not like it used to be and no colic

Ok , I think that she a bit over fed.
I suggest you to give her one single dose ( 2 pills) of Sepia 30c in a day for 3 days & stop & watch for about a
Meanwhile reduce the amount of formula by about 25% and increase the solid food. You may give a teaspoonful of Bonison syrup ( Himalaya product) at bedtime. This will sooth her digestion and improve the sleep pattern also.
