In brief: Emphysema

Is rather a syndrome, management is long term and multifaceted, drug therapy is only one aspect, environmental control and habit control like stopping smoking and avoiding smokers is important, nutrition and physical activity.
Given that you are only on these two medications, means your doctor is comfortable with that regimen, if otherwise, you feel uncontrolled, kindly revisit your doctor
