I took it at the recommendation of my LC starting at about 2 weeks. I have trouble saying whether it helped or not, because I am not sure that I had a really good idea of how much I was pumping consistently before that to compare it to. I can say the times i forgot to take it for a while I think I noticed a decline, so I would say it had some effect. Just make sure you are taking more that the 2 or 3 a day the bottle probably says. My LC told me to take 2 with each meal and 2 before bed .. so 8 total a day ... and I have heard of people who have been told to take even more than that.
"If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there shall Thy hand lead me and Thy right hand shall guide me."

I took it with blended thistle and really didn't notice too much of a difference. I got a script for reglan and I did notice a big increased with that, but I know it has some bad side effects for some.

My LC told me the same thing, take at least double what the recommended dose is to actually see a difference. I do think it has helped. Also, other things that help:
- oatmeal
- malt (beer or ovaltine)
- getting enough sleep (really saw a decrease when i wasn't sleeping enough)
- massaging my breasts while pumping and also compressing
