 I've tried the capsules but not the tea.

I haven't. 

What worked the best for me (and I'm nursing my fourth baby) is oatmeal.  I found a recipe for lactation cookies that called for oats, flax seed, and brewer's yeast as the ingredients that helped milk supply.  After I read that I would put those ingredients in anything and everything that I could.  I saw a huge difference.  I told my sister about it, who was also nursing a baby, and she said that she had stopped eating oatmeal every day for about a week and noticed a difference in her supply.

When nursing, I drink a tea that contains fenugreek as well as other herbs.  It's by the brand Yogi and called something like, "Nursing help."

Also, I'd eat a bit bowl of oatmeal for breakfast each day. 

Never a problem keeping up my supply!

I've taken the tincture and had some increase in pumping output.  My first go to is an increase in water intake-I find that drinking at least 100 ounces a day makes a big difference.

I tried the capsules. I couldn't remember to take them as often as you're supposed to so it didn't really do anything. I don't think it's likely to hurt.

I took the capsules and it definitely helped. I followed the lactation consultant's directions completely. Be forewarned--you will smell like maple syrup.

If you're going to use it on a regular basis, you'll probably prefer capsules over the tea.
