Reducing Medications

I have hyperthyroid symptoms (dizziness, nervous, heart palpitations, hair falling out...) due to excess amount of thyroid medication.  My lab results are as follows:  T4 is 1.2, T3 is 3.3 and TSH is .08.  I am under 25 mcg of Levoxly and 30 mg twice daily (60) of Armour Thyroid.  How much should I reduce my medication to reach a normal TSH? Honestly, I like to stop taking all medications...I think I'd feel better.  Maybe I was misdiagnosed with hypothyroid? I really appreciate your help!! You're the only doctor so far that has agreed with me about TSH levels. Many Thanks!

I am no doctor, but I would suggest dropping one of the meds and get another doctor. Either do the 25mcg levoxyl or 30 mg of armour (once a day) until you get another opinion  I would not stop doing some kind of med because you could go hypo very quickly.
