The survey found that bullying was quite common, with one out of eight men and one out of five complaining being bullied at work. Many of them took sedatives and antidepressants to cope.

Men appeared to rely on medications more than women, the study found. Even seeing others being bulled can have emotional effects and such people were one and a half times more likely to require medications.

Victims at the workplace must tap into employee support programs and wellness measures available to stay connected, rather than going into a shell, as this can make their problems worse.
