am I overmedicated

5 months ago I was taking 100 mcgs of levo and felt bad, my tsh was 3.5 0.55-4.80m U/L I decided to start taking NDT and come off the levo . I have felt really well since but in last few couple of weeks have noticed a few of the old symptoms creeping back. Last bloods 2 weeks ago were 0.11 I think I should take less At present take 3 tabs . Please advise.

On NDT the TSH only approach is useless. You need FT4 & FT3 measured to know whether you are under or over medicated, or indeed just right.

you need to go by symptom relief, not labs, raising by elimination of symptoms.
