In brief: Depends

You should buy from a reputable pharmacy only and in the U.
S. Only (due to the unique laws of each country). For otc meds, that shouldn't be a problem - you can get it from walgreens, drugstore.Com, amazon, etc. For prescriptions, you need to be sure they are legal. Make sure they ask for the prescription or call your doctor. If they don't work with insurance, it's also a red flag.
