Hi lenie! Welcome :)
I'd definitely ask about
more Asacol when flaring. Six is a minimum maintenence dose.
Have you tried Rowasa or Colocort?
This disease can surely put the most up beat person down at times. Especially when you're flaring frequently or for a long time.
Definitely talk to your doc and let him/her know what you're feeling. If you don't like their response - find a new doc! It's essential to have a medical team that you can trust.
