Online pharmaceuticals: Experiences?

Anybody buy drugs online? Like, stuff that you'd need a prescription for (Xanax, Tylenol w/codeine, Paxil, etc.)? Is it U.S.-legal to get a prescription online, or do you have to deal with a non-U.S. place? Are any safe/reputable?

Drugstore.com worked for me. You can get the whole scrip worth of refills in one order, which is a really nice to running to the store every month or whatever. Plus your insurance company will be happy with you, and many charge you less for mail-order drugs (if you have drug coverage). Entirely legal.

Are there sites that will actually provide you the prescription (asking you some questions online)? It sounds very illegal, and that's what I'm wondering about. Not that I want to go out and do this right now, but it seems like less hassle if you know what you need...

One thing to remember is that drugs are affected by heat, and it gets hot in mail trucks. One reason I never used that method for refills.

Those sites work in conjunction with doctors who "diagnose" you based on a description of your symptoms, prescribing the drug that you say you need. So it's technically legal if a bit repugnant.

They'll reject you for saying stuff like "I need Vicodin to get high" and the reputable ones don't actually deal in narcotics to avoid legal issues. I have a friend (not me-- I have thicker head hair than Mitt Romney and and Buckwheat combined) who gets Propecia from ePharmacist.

DISCLAIMER: I am an idiot, and just because I say that something is legal and seems safe doesn't mean that it's true.
