Androgel and Anti-Rejection Meds

I have been informed thqat I have low T. The endocrinologist has put me onto 2 pumps/day. He's aware, or should be aware, of the other meds I'm on, including 1.5 mg tacrolimus BID, 20 mg leflunomide daily, and 5 mg prednisone daily. I find no contrindications re/ androgel and either the tacrolimus or the leflunomide, but I'm reading about some potential problems re/ the prednisone. Are there any problems with prednisone other than the potential for heightened aggressiveness, and/or are there other difficulties re/ the other immunosuppressants? I'm a kidney transplant recipient, and I also understand that androgel can skew creatinine level tests.
