Phenolphthalein was an active ingredient in over-the-counter (OTC) laxatives that is currently not approved for marketing due to concerns of carcinogenicity. The FDA reclassified the ingredient as “not generally recognized as safe and effective” in 1999. Patients that consume phenolphthalein could experience potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer.
