We're just patients here, not doctors. By forum rules we are not allowed to prescribe. We can only talk about our experiences, as astroman did (not criticizing his advice!). Whatever type you prefer, please see some sort of doctor.
Whether D-Limonene will help you or not may depend on your "all sorts of problems." Do you have reflux, and if so, what is the cause? There are all sorts of reasons: bad sphincter, very large hiatal hernia, food sensitivities, etc. Why did your doctor prescribe the meds?
I agree with astroman, that not all doctors will have heard about D-limonene. I went to a gastroenterologist a cardiologist, a naturopath-pharmacist, and some sort of "therapist" claiming to be able to "test" me for sensitivity to drugs by holding a sealed bottle of a chemical up to me, and 2 allergists, before finding a third allergist who knew anything about what was triggering my reflux reaction after I had eaten any of several unrelated foods (gelatin, maple syrup, bread, brown sugar, corn starch .....). It's probably not your problem.
I found my "natural cure" in avoiding the foods containing sulfites. It didn't cure my loose, leaking lower esophageal sphincter (which the gastroenterologist did find), but it did stop my heaving episodes (what I call refluxing) and tachycardia. Keeping a food journal/diary is free and easy, and it was what my 3rd allergist recommended. I found my list of "trigger foods" and googled them with "food allergies." My other doctors never did believe in my sulfite problem, but other people have problems with salicylates, and many other specific types of chemicals, often contained naturally in food items. The allergy forum is awash with food sensitivity stories. Again, this may not have anything to do with your problems.
