When Rick takes a Miraclo pill, can he just take one pill a day or can he take more than just one a day?

How strong, fast, agile, etc does he get?

...he can take more than one pill a day, but he's exposing himself to the danger of becoming addicted to them if he does so.

That point was never clearly defined. In the Silver Age, he seemed to become powerful enough to deal with Superman at times, while at other times he seemed much weaker.
Today, I'd place him around Spiderman's level of strength, but I'm not sure about the agility and speed bits. He's definatly below Spidey in those departments, IMO.

That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan; retails for about one hundred nine, ninety-five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right, shop smart, shop S-Mart!"
