Generally speaking, health supplements are safe to consume, but there's not a lot of evidence to support their use as a treatment for any medical condition. Simple "trouble shooting" for fatigue involves making sure you are getting good sleep, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. In addition, I would recommend a you visit a good primary care doctor to determine what may be causing your symptoms. Fatigue can be a sign of anything from diabetes to depression to sleep apnea. You need a good doctor to guide you through this diagnostic process. In the meantime, I would try regular exercise, a healthy diet, and above all, good sleep!
