I've tried as much as 9 Asacol per day (3 pills 3x per day) but that many actually seems to cause very fluidic BMs -- we're talking pissing out of my arse level of fluidic. Though, it does seem to reduce bleeding fairly quickly at that dosage. I've also noticed similar results (though not as fluidic) if I move to 3 pills 2x per day, so I suspect (for me at least) it's more a function of how many you're taking at a time rather than how many you're taking in a day.
So, for me, it's a tradeoff; I usually stick with 6/day (2 pills 3x/day).
