:Jenny,
The amount of psyllium in the capsules vary from one manufacturer to the next -- I started off using one brand that had 500 mg per capsule and am now using one that has 880 mg per capsule. If this helps any -- metamucil has 2.3 grams of psyllium in it per tablespoon. In order to get the same affect as that, you would have to take about 7 of your 325 mg tablets (325 x 7 = 2275 mg = about 2.27 grams). I'm currently taking two of my 880 mg a day which is only about 1.8 grams of psyllium and it seems to work well for me. Like Harry said, everyone is different so you will have to experiment first to find your right dosage. I would recommend starting off low and adding on. I hope all of this didn't confuse you -- I just wanted to compare the capsules with the metamucil so you could get a better understanding of how much psyllium you are using. Hope this helped some. TK
