Any Mamas With Epilepsy?

I’m 12 weeks along on my first pregnancy and everything has been great so far, but my neurologist wants to raise the dosage on my anticonvulsant Lamictal: from 700 mg to 900 mg. I’m stressed about the whole thing because I was on such a high dose before I got pregnant. I didn’t think we’d have to raise my amounts so soon but my blood levels dropped from 9.3 to 5.1. I’m worried about toxicity levels and now I think breastfeeding definitely will be out. Anyone have similar experiences?
