Liothyronine Dosage?

I have been taking Synthroid--.2mg--for over 15 years. Suddenly I'm putting on weight and nothing seems to help. I get a lot of exercise--working out with a trainer 3 hours/week, tennis, horse-back riding and horse-care. I eat between 1200 and 1800 calories daily. I am 5'5" tall and now weigh 135, up ten pounds from my normal weight. I have been told that adding T3 to my synthroid should help. I am currently taking .05mg in two doses. No changes so far. Any suggestions?
