A: The full prescribing information provided by the drug company that makes Crestor (rosuvastatin) does not list decreased testosterone as an adverse effect of the medication. Reviews of recent medical literature has shown a possibility of this class of medication (not Crestor specifically) affecting testosterone levels.
