first time using this medication and two 800 mg tree times a day look to much
This is the recommended dosage instructions from https://www.drugs.com/pro/asacol-hd.html
"For the treatment of moderately active ulcerative colitis, the recommended dose of Asacol HD in adults is two 800 mg tablets to be taken three times
daily with or without food."
This is the recommended adult dose - you would be unwise to reduce your dose without talking to your doctor first.
If you reduce your dose without speaking with your doctor it is likely that the Asacol HD will be ineffective.
