Low Testosterone

Patient : My Testosterone levels were 178 in April 2013 and 177 October 2013. In December 2013 my doctor prescribed Axiron and my levels jumped to 657. I have a lot of energy and have seen the physical results from daily exercise as well as no complaints from my wife, if you know what I mean. I am 54, 6' 245lbs (down from 265). I just had my T checked this week and my levels have dropped to 279. The only other medication I am on is Humira for my psoriatic arthritis. Should my physician prescribe something other than Axiron?
