As my IBS is playing up a fair bit lately (so I'm not eating much) I'd like to get some Ensure Plus (or similar FULL nutrient drink). I've previously ordered it through a chemist but this usually takes ages to arrive - where can I buy it online in the UK?westonshealth.co.uk have it, but at �2.50 per carton it seems rather expensive (especially as in America it's less than half that price).Thanks

You should be able to get it from your GP on prescription. That would still mean having to order it, but if you are at risk of malnourishment I don't see why you should have to pay for it. Explain the situation to your gastro or GP. The only thing I would mention is that they do contain casein which is a milk protein that can cause problems if you are sensitive to it, but they are lactose free. Good luck
