Naturopathic route or Medication for child with ADHD?

I have a 6 year old son who was diagnosed with ADHD combined type in January 2016. My husband and I decided to try going to a Naturopathic Doctor to see if herbal remedies and elimination diets would help to curb the many symptoms of ADHD that interfere with his ability to reach his full potential (academically and socially). It's been 6 months with homeopathic medicines and a dairy free diet, and our son has made improvements behaviourally (reduction in aggression), however, his inability to focus at school has had a huge impact on his education. We are now wondering if we should put our child on Biphentin which was recommended by the psychiatrist to help him focus.
