Hi Ariel, thank you very much for your response. I am basing the approach on the following references:
 
Leon AC, Demirtas H, Li C, Hedeker D. Two propensity score-based strategies for a three-decade observational study: investigating psychotropic medications and suicide risk. Stat Med. 012 Aug .. 

Also from the book chapter: Analysis of Observational Health Care Data Using SAS, "A Two-Stage Longitudinal Propensity Adjustment for Analysis of Observational Data" Andrew C. Leon, Donald Hedeker, Chunshan Li.
