Fenugreek works best in combination with blessed thistle. Usually you know that you're taking enough because your sweat will start to smell like maple syrup. There is also a drug called Motilium / Domperidone. I don't know much about obtaining it in the US. I live in Canada right now. Nursing frequently will help with milk supply. Some women also find that large amounts of parsley or oregano can cause their supply to drop. Also, if your period has returned your supply might drop right before you ovulate or right before your period starts.
