Slotrexin isn't for everyone, including people with liver problems and women who are nursing or pregnant.
Why, yes, those are examples of the people who fall under the "everyone" category! How about:

Slotrexin isn't for everyone. People with liver problems should not take it, nor should women who are nursing or pregnant.

Still a little wordy for my taste. I'd change it to "Slotrexin should not be taken by people with liver problems, or by women who are nursing or pregnant."

You should then add: "Women who are nursing or pregnant who also have liver problems should avoid this drug at all costs." :-)

Personally, I'd prefer the active voice:

"Do not take Slotrexin if you are pregnant, nursing, or have liver problems."

or

"Those who have liver problems, or are nursing or pregnant should not take Slotrexin."
