Dietician has advised supplements, including probiotics, for DS1, 3.11, who possibly has ASD.

I have looked online for the best ones, and I like the look of Iflora and Culturelle, as they have more strains / strands.

Are these available on NHS script?

Also, fish oils, are these available?

Probiotics aren't prescribable on the NHS. There is an exception for one particular licensed brand only for people who have a severe inflammation of a surgical 'pouch' (a colostomy alternative).

Fish oils: again there is one prescribable brand, which is only licensed for people who have had coronary disease.
