Depends: For bipolar depression seroquel (quetiapine) xr 300 is typical. For bipolar mania or schizophrenia doses can go to 800 mg and occasionally higher depending on the patient's tolerance and need and liver metabolism.

Overdose = Dangerous: If the overdose was intentional then any dose is dangerous. A suicide attempt is a medical emergency. Seek assistance immediately. The manufacturer recommends a maximum dose of 800md/day. Overdoses any where from 9 grams to 30 grams have been reported. Usually not fatal, but fatalities have occurred. I would recommed emergency treatment with any overdose that alters one's mental status.
