    According to the LLL Breastfeeding Answer Book, it takes 24 to 72 hours to see an increase in milk supply once the herbs are started in the correct dose. This must be coupled with increased pumping/feeds to be effective. I do not have information on how long to take. You may find what you need here:

    (not LLL source).

    HTH.
