the main character, Monty, has a severe addiction to alcohol that he admits but is slow at overcoming. he drinks frequently and on-page and gets stressed out and desperate when he isn't able to. the book discusses this all frequently.

one of the main characters has epilepsy and a seizure takes place on-page, as described by the narrator who doesn't know what's going on. it is a plot point of the book and discussed throughout, as well as fears of later seizures happening.

a few times. first after a character has a seizure towards the beginning of the book, and later after monty has been stabbed towards the end of the book. both brief and not too graphic. a few references to feeling like one will t*u*, usually from drinking.

a character with epilepsy discusses his worries about being put into an institution as this is a historical fiction book and, in this time period, his disability would have allowed for his family to make that decision. to my knowledge, there is no scene taking place in one but it is discussed frequently enough to be triggering.

yes, but it is resolved. the main character is privileged and wants to find a "cure" for a friend with epilepsy. this, and the subsequent actions he takes, are a frequent part of the book until he understands the problem with his beliefs. the author's point is that disabled people do not have to want or need a "cure" to be happy.

No, but "negro" is used a few times in reference to a Black character in the 1700s.

not exactly, and not in a stressful manner. a woman in a (alchemically-induced/almost fantasy) coma-like state that she will not wake from is put into her tomb. the characters debate whether she should be considered alive or not to begin with.
