Main problem with oral iron therapy is stomach upset. I can not say that the roblems being faced by you is NOT due to iron but iron is unlikely to cause such symptoms. I would suggest you to get your son assessed by your doctor. Also, make sure he is taking iron only if he really is iron deficient.
