Will deltasone (prednisone) increase testosterone?

Not likely. Deltasone is a brand of prednisone. It is a corticosteroid which is much different than an anabolic or androgenic steroid. Taking Deltasone when you don't need it (and sometimes even if you do need it) can cause high blood pressure, diabetes, thin skin, obesity, cataracts, ulcers and many other problems.
