Thanks for your query,
you mentioned your son is pale and gets tired,
These are signs of anemia,and needs to be evaluated
I advise you to get your son checked by a not give any self medication.
In the meantime give him balanced in green leafy vegetable.salads.fruit
Avoid all kind of junk food and fried food

Your son will be fine.
God bless
