You are:

COFFEE

My prefix indicates friendship

CO is a prefix meaning 'with' or 'mutual', usually representing something two people (for example) might share in a friendly way: think 'co-operate', 'co-pilot', 'co-exist', etc.

My infix can be turned another way

Something that is OFF can also be turned another way: on!

My suffix is one half of an exchange

A FEE is something which one person in an exchange (like a trade or a sale) will pay in order to receive a commodity in return.

As for the title:

COFFEE! COFFEE! COFFEE! COFFEE! COFFEE! Er... I mean, coffee is a stimulant, since it contains caffeine.

My answer

Tightroping

My prefix indicates friendship

Tight is an adjective used to describe a close personal relationship

My infix can be turned another way

Ro which, when turned, gives "or" (another way)

My suffix is one half of an exchange

Ping which is a query in computing to determine whether there is a connection or not (the affirmative reply being "pong")

Title

Tightroping (synonym for tightrope walking) is indeed a stimulating activity.
