How do I search for all patients who are taking any strength of a particular drug family?

It can be relatively easy in Vision to search for anyone taking a specific drug item.

For example this might be useful for an audit of antibiotic usage. How can we do this easily without having to create a big list of drug items in the search criteria?[more]


Which patient did I just see?
