The vast majority of physicians both offer informal medical advice to family/friends and will write prescriptions for family/friends.  Although there are no federal laws to prohibit this, the American Medical Association does state in their code of ethics that physicians should not treat themselves or friends/family members. If you do choose to provide medical advice, make sure you are knowledgeable on the subject, keep the primary care physician in the loop, keep some form of medical documentation, and avoid prescribing medication for these informal encounters.
