How much of this drug would it take to have an unsafe overdose? Asking for, well, obvious reasons.

I believe the generic of this drug is Lamictal(?) Anyway, there's a pretty large dosing window for it, so it'd be less about the number and more about the symptoms of overdose experienced. Granted, if more of any drug is taken than prescribed or recommended by a physician - this is generally unsafe.

The point is, if you or someone you know has any suspicion of an overdose, and especially if symptoms (http://www.rxlist.com/lamictal-drug/overdosage-contraindications.htm) of such an overdose are suspected, please immediately contact a poison control center or your local emergency number.
