Ashma/COPD: It looks like you are on quite a lot of medications for your asthma or COPD. The important thing about asthma/COPD is that you need to take medication religiously everyday to prevent flare ups or worsening lung function. It is a chronic disease requiring taking medications chronically. If you have done all of that and still have symptoms like you say, you need to come back to see your doctor.
