Thrush in young babies usually clears by itself, however, if your child has had the condition for a long time you should consult a doctor to prescribe anti fungal medication such as nystatin. Thrush is a yeast infection so giving the baby an antibiotic was not a remedy to the disease.

I would call the doctor's office and explain that it has not completely gone away. They should be able to call in another prescription without you having to go back for another appointment.
