Some symptoms of depression in men include changes in appetite, loss of interest in pleasurable activities, fatigue, apathy and sleep disturbance, according to WebMD. Men may express symptoms of depression differently than women because of social stigma.
Because many consider depression to be a feminine issue, men with depression may be more likely to display the physical symptoms of the condition than the emotional, explains WedMD. Depressed women are more likely than men to have the outward emotional symptoms of sadness and worthlessness. While some men do experience these feelings when they are depressed, they may outwardly express irritability or hostility instead.
