When to stop gaviscon for reflux

My baby is just a week off six months old and started weaning last week. Just on one 'meal' per day about 5-6 spoonfuls of fruit or veg so far.

He has been on gaviscon (two sachets) since about 4 weeks old for reflux. When I spoke to the health visitor she advised that when I start weaning to wean DS off gaviscon gradually. So for the first week of weaning I continued to give gaviscon as usual and then on Monday reduced to just one sachet in every bottle. However yesterday and today he has been sick lots and more unsettled than usual. I think I am going to put him back on his normal dose tomorrow if he is the same.

My question is when did you stop/wean off gaviscon and how? Should I wait until weaning is more established before trying again?
