There's some debate surrounding this actually.

The official guidelines are: equal to or greater than 300 mg for bipolar & equal to or greater than 400 mg for schizophrenia.

Also noteworthy is the medication information states low doses of around 100 mg are associated with increased negative side effects such as weight gain.

That being the case, some people are prescribed as low as 25 mg for things like insomnia, but there's debate on if it works and if it has potential for addiction at low doses- so it's good to ask your doctor before trying it differently than described.
