Help, Tsh Lowered From 47.10-1.60 In 2 Weeks? Possible

Hi guys I needed help, I was in the ER yesterday for asthma, however the doc ordered a thyroid tsh test and I was a bit confused whether the nurse really did my bloodwork or not she put the iv but since I was having a breathing treatment I was a bit dizzy and dont remember clearly,, especially since one time my blood work was switched one time, so since I did not see the nurse drawing blood I was a bit worried that my results were again switched. on 1/13/15 my tsh was 47.10 and yesterday 1/25/05 was at 1.60, can this be possible to have it lowered so much, I recently just started the thyroid combo meds. srmour/synthroid a bit over a week ago, anyway my doc sent me for a new test tomorrow to make sure of these results what do you guys think this can be possible? below are before/after results within 1/13/15-1/25/05

TSH has a half-life of less than an hour, so once thyroid hormoen levels (T3 and T4) are high enough, TSH can fall dramatically.

I am not a doctor, nor have I ever played one on TV...

I haven't had my drop that quickly but when I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism my TSH was 292 and a week later when I went to the doc to get treatment it was 393. (I was diagnosed at the hospital and told to see my doc to get treatment. That's why there was a week lag.) In almost two months my TSH dropped from 393 to .19. Needless to say that made me feel hyper, jittery, shaky etc.
