If not urgent...: One way to figure out what causes fatigue is to keep a diary for 2 weeks and show it to the primary care doctor. The diary should include things such as medicines taken, vitamins or supplements taken, caffeine / alcohol / illegal drugs used, bedtimes, wake-up times, stressors (job / home / spouse / kids / etc.), exercising, foods eaten, meal times, etc... Blood tests might be done.
