My question is, has anyone here had any success increasing libido with any supplements, pills, etc? I desperately want her to regain at least some of the former drive that she used to have. (by the way, I'm 29 and she's 27).

Nope, no medications, thankfully. It's just been naturally decreasing. I know sex drive ebbs and flows through life, and that it may come roaring back after a while, I just don't want to wait
I always hear about supplements or pills that increase libido, but I never really believe in them, so that's why I'm curious if anyone has had any experience or any other tips.

Yes time part can definitely light a fire - last year I had to be away for 3-4 weeks at a time, and every time I would come back we would rip each others clothes off However, as a general rule it's not something that's sustainable for every day life and it's also not really a solution the problem, unfortunately.
Also I'm not really sure what you mean by the second part of your response?

I experienced the same thing just this summer. My libido had been flagging for a couple years; I was always preoccupied, too tired, etc. Then I started working out a lot more this summer and suddenly we are not only frequently having sex, but I am masturbating regularly and we finally got around to the swinging that we have been discussing for years.
So, see whether her non-sex exercise routine has been flagging. If she does not have one at all, then maybe start finding some exercises that you two can do together. (Suggesting that she alone needs to start working out could cause even more problems.)
Also, has her life changed substantially or not changed enough? She might be depressed, stressed, or bored. If her job greatly aggravates her, or she wishes that you two could go on some exciting vacation, then she might need a change of pace. Check how she is doing in general; it might be reflected in how she is doing sexually without her even being aware.
