Hi there.

You need to reduce the dose of Synthyroid with the help of your doctor for the over controlled TSH. Waiting for this for another 1 week is not a big deal or harmful. Nothing to be worried about. Tiredness and falling hair can be part of uncontrolled hypothyroidism and also due to low hemoglobin. Do get your latest hemoglobin test done and get back with the report for further assistance.
Take care.
