325mg of Aspirin is used to treat pain, headaches etc. You would need to speak to your doctor to know for sure if that is too much. Aspirin can interact with other medicines, so your physician would be the best source of info as he has your medical history etc.

I think its too much as it may cause thinning of blood. You should buy Ecosprin that is around 75-81 mg. It is available over the counter without prescription. I think 325 is WAY too much!
