Please help me with labs and Cytomel question

These are my lab results after being on 100mcg Synthroid for 2 weeks after an increase from 88mcg.

TSH .04 (.4-4.5)
FT4 1.2 (.8-1.8)
FT3 294 (230-420)

I just saw my dr. and he agreed that my FT3 was too low, but he said my FT4 was fine. He's so worried about my osteoporosis getting worse that he doesn't want my FT4 to go too high. Right now all I want is to feel better.

So he wrote me a prescription for Cytomel 25mcg and said to take it once a day. Do I really need this or do I just need my Synthroid increased again. This is a new dr. I was seeing on a trial basis to see if I wanted to change dr's. I have an appt with my regular endo in Oct. So if I don't really need the Cytomel, I don't want to mess up my labs so my endo won't know what to prescribe.
