Buy medication overseas

I feel like I see this talked about in several threads, but not necessarily a thread just dedicated to it. What are the "go to" places for people who go this route? India and Canada seem to be popular. What are the specific pharmacy websites from these countries that provide the medication? Are people satisfied with the results?

It's not legal that's why there aren't any threads dedicated to it and why this thread is being closed.

From the FDA

"Many drugs obtained from foreign sources that claim or appear to be the same as U.S.-approved drugs are, in fact, of unknown quality and may even be counterfeit. There is also a possibility that drugs coming to U.S.consumers through Canada, or that claim to be from Canada, may not actually be Canadian drugs. FDA cannot assure the authenticity, safety, or effectiveness of drugs from foreign countries."
