Last Try:To Nancy the Mad Scientist re: T3 & T4

The ending of my post somehow disappeared a 2ND time so here goes again:

After reading about your experience of adding T3 (Cytomel) to T4 (Synthroid), I discussed it with my doctor and he was willing to try this augmentation strategy. I've been taking Cytomel for nearly 3 months now and just had a blood test to check my TSH. I think I may have jeopardized the results of that test, so I'd like your opinion. When I began taking Cytomel, my doctor asked me to reduce Synthroid to just 5 days per week. When I went for my blood test, I hadn't had a dose of Synthroid for 40 hours. Could this have affected the test? Should I have had my blood drawn instead on a day when I'd taken both T3 and T4? The results came back abnormal with a level of <0.03
mcU/mL while the "normal" range is 0.29-5.11 (and I only know this because I had the lab send me a copy as you suggested). Please enlighten me with your wisdom and interpret this since it will be awhile before I see my doctor due to his vacation.
