In brief: Acute bronchitis...
Treatment for acute bronchitis depends on etiology.
For a bacterial infection, antibiotics are used but there is no treatment for viral bronchitis as antibiotics are ineffective. There is no cure for emphysema but viral bronchitis will resolve on its own within a week to 10 days.

In brief: More info needed
There are many very good medications for acute bronchitis and emphysema.
More information is needed to determine the correct medications. Seeing your family doctor, internist or pulmonologist, will be important to determine the "right" medications for your specific condition.
