.05 grams = .05(1000) = 50 milligrams

3(50 milligrams) = 150 milligrams

150 milligrams/25 milligrams = 6

So you should order six 25 milligram capsules This answer is only sufficient for 1 day. The physician wants 50 mg three times a day for 2 days which is 300 mg = 12 capsules. Patent takes 2 capsules at each dosage time.
