R.I.P. Wally Schirra

Rest in peace to the man who turned me on to Actifed, Mercury 7 astronaut Wally Schirra. Schirra was the only man to fly in the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs. He was 84.

A Mighty Man.

In the red, white and blue box - as American as apple pie and monster trucks.

Wally was right - only actifed.

Sadly, Actifed's formulation was changed recently, and it isn't nearly as good (for allergy relief or otherwise). The decongestant was changed from pseudoephedrine to phenylephrine, and the antihistimine was changed from triprolidine to chlorpheniramine.
