Brief Answer:
Magnesium 400 mg tablets (CVS) and a multivitamin!

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Magnesium supplement tablets available at CVS would do.

For fatigue, the exact cause needs to be established. While pending, we give him multivitamins. It will be important that the doctors evaluated him as multivitamins alone wouldn't help if there is another underlying health condition that needs to be addressed.

Hope I have answered your query.

I wish you well.
