In brief: Fix underlying cause

Antibiotics alone isn't the panacea -no antibiotic will "get rid" of the infection meaningfully unless the underlying cause is addressed.
Otherwise, it will recur. A urological evaluation is needed in women if repeated infections occur (in men , it need happen only once) to determine if there is an anatomical or physiological problem that can be fixed- only then can antibiotics finish the job.
