Excessive burping when lying down

I have no GI symptoms during the day, normal bowel habits, no gas, no acid reflux...just excessive burping and only when I lie down.  This can go on for 1+ hours and prevents me from sleeping.  I am taking antibiotics so I do take a probiotic and acid reducer on a daily basis.  I avoid carbonated beverages in the evening.  OTC medications such as Tums do nothing to help.

Is the antibiotic causing this problem? I have a chronic lung infection so I've been taking these for 14 months and have 4 more months to go.  

Any suggestions are welcome.
