Hi,
It seems that you might be having chronic pharyngitis and antibiotics given might be less sensitive or resistant to causing organisms.
Go for throat swab examination and culture sensitivity test to know exact causative organisms and antibiotics working against them.
After report go for specific antibiotic medicine course for long time.
Ok and take care.
