Low TSH - should I decrease my levothyroxine?

Recent Thyroid Profile II showed my TSH to be way low at 0.162.   My Thyroxine (T4), T3 uptake, Free Thyroxine Index and Triiodothyronine (T3) were all within normal range.

I currently taking 150 mcg of Thyrosid and 50 mg of iodine.  Should I decrease my thyroid medicine?

My TSH came back .11 and they decreased my synthroid to only 5 days/wk instead of 7 (but added an extra cytomel to help combat other symptoms).

Please post your actual thyroid test results along with reference ranges which vary lab to lab and have to come from your own lab report.

Do you feel overmedicated (hyper)?
