Brief Answer:
Magnesium 400mg 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.

I wish you well.
