Anyone have first hand experience with anticonvulsants and breastfeeding?

Specifically lamictal or keppra. What was your experience? Did you wean off of these drugs before you gave birth? Did you avoid them during pregnancy altogether? Did you find a safer alternative drug or treatment? Were you able to work with your doctor to find some safe way of breastfeeding while on these medications? Did you decide to forego breastfeeding altogether while on these meds?
