I had oversupply up until I had to get surgery to remove my appendix, and either one of the drugs they gave me or the time I spent away from my daughter really took a hit at my milk supply.
To get it back up I stayed well hydrated, nursed at least every two hours and took alfalfa and fenugreek. I heard oatmeal works great too. You may want to avoid using the pacifier for at least the first month as well, or it might interfere with establishing good supply.

Here's a website that talks about it:
Increasing Your Milk Supply

And also a recipe for "lactation cookies" that I've heard a lot of moms swear by:
