#' Add Lastdose Data
#'
#' Add lastdose data to data set from the \code{\link{buildDose}} process.
#'
#' Lastdose is a datetime string associated with dose data. Information on time
#' of last dose can be extracted within the \code{\link{extractMed}} function
#' (i.e., \code{\link[medExtractR]{medExtractR}}) using the argument
#' \code{lastdose=TRUE}. Raw extracted times should first be processed using the
#' \code{\link{processLastDose}} function to convert to datetime format before providing
#' to \code{addLastDose}. This function then combines the processed last dose times with output
#' from the \code{\link{buildDose}} process by file name to pair last dose times with dosing regimens based on position.
#' Alternatively, the user can provide their own table of lastdose data. In this case, with position
#' information absent, the lastdose data should be restricted to one unique last dose time per
#' unique patient ID-date identifier.
#'
#' In the case where \code{lastdoseData} is output from \code{\link{processLastDose}}, it is possible to
#' have more than one extracted last dose time. In this case, rules are applied to determine which
#' time should be kept. First, we give preference to an explicit time expression (e.g., "10:30pm")
#' over a duration expression (e.g., "14 hour level"). Then, we pair last dose times with drug regimens
#' based on minimum distance between last dose time start position and drug name start position.
