Clicking yes simply because of characters being kept in realistic dream states, occasionally without knowing, and everyone with dp/dr knows the “waking dream.”

The suicide of the main character's wife is caused by a plot-point/sci-fi related type of Gaslighting.

Mixed bag on this, there is abuse of the compound utilized in the technology that the movie is based upon. They also sedate the marks of jobs before utilizing the technology through inexplicit means. Sedatives are a key component in the film.

A character is stabbed suddenly in the films climax and earlier in the film a woman suddenly looks toward a character who is eavesdropping on her. Both of these are accompanied by sudden loud music but they are more startling than a frightening jump scare.

No, but someone during the snow scene repeatedly coughs. We see blood droplets hit the ground once, and another time the character pulls their cap down to cough into it.

Not in the traditional sense but a man portrays a woman in one of the dream worlds and flirts with someone for an ulterior motive. There’s a “shocking gender reveal” after this when one of their reflections shows this character as a man instead.

Though atypical, the final level of the dream does take place in a military protected hospital," and the one of the final scenes is a death bed scene at a hospital bed.

Very briefly. While being chased in Mombasa, Cobb squeezes through an alleyway and almost gets stuck. The shot is angled so that it looks as if the walls are closing in on him.

Though the character, who other comments mention commiting suicide, did not plan to die. She believed she was in a dream, and in this story if you die in a dream, you wake up. She tried to wake up. (On the same note, many characters kill each other or themselves in dream scenarios to wake up, but those deaths are not actual deaths.)
