Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

The progression can be significantly retarded or stopped by;

1) Cessation of smoking.

2) Stopping any form of tobacco.

3) Bronchodilator medications

4) Tiotropium

5) Roflumilast

6) Oral and inhaled corticosteroids

Not all the above would be used in early stages. In the initial stage of disease, just cessation of the smoking is good enough to stop the progression of the disease.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
