How can I obtain most frequently prescribed drugs post diagnosis?

It might be in front of my eyes and I simply can’t see it. Then I apologise. I’ve searched this forum and www for guidance but without any luck so far.

It’s a simple query really. I want to obtain the most frequently prescribed drugs in the period 1 year post index date. Index date is defined in my cohort as the first diagnosis of epilepsy.

I’ve defined the cohort. But in Characterization, when I choose feature analysis related to drug exposure, the time windows (short, medium, long term) available are preceding the cohort start which I understand is the index date. Is there a way to define a feature looking at time window post index?

If you are using FeatureExtraction to generate characterization then you can do this by specifying future time windows in

Thanks! Your reply got me looking in the right direction and I was eventually able to solve by defining a custom feature analysis in ATLAS.
