Rules for LM potency usagesWe know for centesimal potency, a remedy is taken and we wait for any changes, aggravation or amelioration. And if any of those seen we have to wait until the action is stopped.
So what is the rules for LM potency in the same case? How long one potency i.e M1, or M2 should take as we take LM potency everyday.
When i should stop taking the medicine or when i should change the potency for LM?

you must study this and decide a method or get someone
who is experienced with LM's to supervise you.
Here are two guides for LM dosing-
and other homeopaths have different ways of doing it.-

Since Hahnemann created the new scale to avoid homeopathic aggravations, many people think that LMs do not aggravate at all. Some people also believe that LMs aggravate at the end of treatment, whereas centesimal potencies aggravate at the beginning.
Both the notions are incorrect. LMs are definitely gentler than centesimal scale but they can aggravate just like the C scale in sensitive patients. Aggravations are apparently less because the medicines are diluted so much and also the same potency is never repeated twice. But the aggravations can and do happen with LM potencies, so dont use them blindly.
How do you repeat medicines in the LM scale?
The rule is to repeat the medicine once or twice daily, till a significant positive change becomes visible. After that medicine should not be used mechanically. But repetition entirely depends upon the individual sensitivity and the patients reaction. Ask the patient to report/call after 3 and 7 days or if he/she sees any significant reaction, to judge the initial reaction and modify the dose and repetition accordingly.
In acute cases, you can even repeat every few hours or even every few minutes.
What to do when the first bottle of LM1 is finished.
Do not make another bottle of LM1, graduate to LM2. Similarly when the LM2 is over, move on to LM3 and so on.
Should I do this till LM30?
No. Usually a patient wont need all the potencies in succession. Stop repeating once you see a definite improvement. If your remedy were right, the patient would be cured much before reaching the LM30.
What if the patient shows no reaction to LM1?
You can first try to increase the dose and succussion. Ask the patient to succuss the bottle more and to take 2 or 3 teaspoons from the dilution cup instead of one. If the patient still does not react, move on to a higher LM. And if it still does not work, either your remedy selection is wrong or you need to use the centesimal scale.

19. Dosing continues, increasing it progressively, until the patient, while feeling generally better, begins to manifest one or more of the old, original symptoms. §280
20. Return of old symptoms is a good sign and the medicine is stopped, as this is an indication that no more is needed as the symptoms are of the remedy. To verify this the remedy is stopped for a week or two. If the symptoms are of the remedy they will disappear in a few days and no more medicine may be needed. If traces of the original complaint remain then dosing should be continued from where it was left off. §281
21. A homopathic aggravation i.e. an intensification of the original complaint, at the beginning of treatment, is a sure sign that the dose (i.e. the quantity of the dissolved granule) is too large and must be reduced. §282
22. If the smallest doses are given the even if the remedy is inappropriate the harm done is insignificant and the appropriate remedy quickly puts the case in order. §283
23. Very chronic problems can be speeded up by applying the same solution as that taken by mouth, externally to the back, thighs and lower legs
