In brief: Not an easy question
Not all copders require medication.
Often their exacerbations may be induced by a respiratoy infection while other times they are ok. The current long acting anticholinergics appear to give very good results. Inhaled steriods (cortisone) are effective in some patients but not all. Your physician is the best judge of this. Rescue inhalers (albuterol) are still to be kept available at all times.
