End of S1 and beginning of S2, non-recreational use of illegal drugs. There's also a couple scenes in which characters use party drugs. Someone also tries to buy medicine for another character in relation to disease management; later use of said drugs.

I don't remember if there's amputation in season two, but in season one, one man gets his hands cut off and another loses an arm. Both of these things happen during Capheus' POV.

Yes, but it's resolved in a satisfactory manner at the end of the series for all parties.

I would refer to the actions of the main antagonist as stalking, though it is a bit different from what one would normally consider stalking to look like.

Not really in the usual sense when it comes to demonic possession, but individuals can take control over another persons body.

Hospital scenes may be especially triggering as patient is being held against their will, cuffed, not listened too, etc

Near the beginning of S1 there is a recurring theme of graphic medical abuse. This continues with minor characters into S2.

There are also some scenes where Nomi is seen using needles for her HRT, including a close up in her introduction scene in the first episode.

The first episode has a death that is presented as a suicide, whether it is or not later in the series is ambiguous, but someone triggered by a suicide scene will likely be triggered by this.

The ones that stood out to me most were early S1 mentions of past self harm (c.tting) and self harm through drug abuse, mostly S2, though there may have been others

Angelia by Whispers. Whisper's actions are what pushes Angelica over the edge. Whispers and some of the other characters. There's also some more general deceit/manipulation used by other characters in pursuing their goals

There's a scene at a rave, and there are a few others at clubs which may use a strobing effect to some degree

A lot, and it's very graphic. So even if childbirth isn't a super big trigger for you, this might be not a good idea

Talked about in the end of the second season, but not shown on screen. I personally still found it very triggering. !!!!!!!BIG SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!! Wolfgang's mother is raped by Wolfgang's father, who is also her father. Confusing, I know, but it involves incest as well as sexual assault and domestic abuse. Only the domestic abuse is shown, but it can still be incredibly triggering.

There's a montage shown of hurtful words that were used against the main characters, they're written on the wall in spray paint. The n-word is one of these.

There is very little portrayal of differently abled folk but the focus on the writing is to support differences and demonstrate that bigoted language and behavior is hurtful, misguided, and behavior of antagonists. Neurodivergent representation is positive in the protagonists.

There is a Jewish character in one episode who fits the harmful trope of Jews being involved in money in a negative way. There is also an episode that uses the Holocaust memorial in Berlin as some kind of mental location (one of the characters does live in Berlin? It isn't clear whether he is at the memorial or not) and although this isn't technically anti-Semitism (depending on the intentions of the writers) it is still potentially upsetting.

Yes, there are minor LGBT characters that die, but since the main 8 characters are considered to be pansexual and are very openly portrayed that way, those deaths are not considered to be a part of the bury your gays" trope.

A main character and a couple of minor characters are cops. This is particularly bad in the first couple episodes, where there's some egregious use of white saviorism by the main character cop to show he's "one of the good ones." This lessons a lot after the first couple episodes and as the show progresses, and by season 2 he's not in his job anymore. But there's a significant amount of him abusing his position and power to get what he wants to solve the mystery of the show, especially in season 1, that's never questioned or portrayed as anything but positive and helpful. (While he does get in trouble for some but not all of his actions, it's portrayed more as the punishment being bad and hurting the cause of the main characters than it is a rightfully deserved punishment for abuse of power.) There's also a scene in which a mild insult for cops is compared to actual discriminatory slurs in a pretty offensive manner, equating insulting cops to things like racism, homophobia, sexism, etc.

Nomi’s mom during S1 is really aggressive in the misgendering- deadname/pronoun use consistently in conversations with people using correct terms, comments making fun of chosen name, conspiracy theory about dangers of HRT. Nomi is supported by many others but it can feel pretty rough.

Several of the characters use guns throughout the series. Most of the more violent scenes occur with Wolfgang, but there are some with Capheus. [Spoiler] Angelica commits suicide with a gun

There is a scene where one of the characters is in prison, and the guards attempt to hang her early in season 2. She escapes. Not a hanging exactly, but similarly triggering: Early in season 1, a character is held down and suffocated. She also escapes.
