Nursing Moms that have used Fenugreek

How many Milligrams were in the pills you purchased? I called the all natural store here in my town and the capsules that they carry are 500 milligrams. Is that what the normal amount is? Let me know asap thanks!! :)

  • Yeah, 5-6 hundred is standard. You'll need to take 3-4x the dose listed on the bottle, broken up to about 4 doses during the day for the first 4 days, and then 1/2 of that thereafter.

  • I used it but moved onto a prescription domperidone. I only did 3 pills a day for the first week and then moved to twice a day so maybe that is why I didn't get the results I wanted. But I smelled like maple syrup the whole time I was taking it! God luck with increasing your milk supply!

  • That's what mine were. But when I bought them I didn't realize that you have to take several pills several times a day in order for it to be the least bit effective so I fell off that bandwagon. I'd be going through a bottle a week or less.
