Low T4f

I am current taking 25mcg Cytomel daily in attempt to help with my depression, I had blood taken from my OBGYN this week b/c I was complaining of constant hot flashes and sweating so she wanted to check my hormone levels...my T4 free was 0.32, she has referred me to an endocrinologist. I tried telling her med tech that I was on Cytomel and asked if that would be why it was low but I was just told to see the specialist. I placed a call to my psychiatrist to ask him and still have not heard back. I am just trying to figure out if I have a true problem or if that value if only medication induced b/c my thyroid was fine prior to this drug. My TSH was WNL.
Thanks, any info is appreciated. I think I just want to get off of this med b/c it didn't help my depression anyway.
