Combivent

I was recently diagnosed with "mild" emphysema from a CT scan that was run for another reason.  I have had a PFT however, do not yet know the exact numbers.  Dr's nurse called and said it was mild and that the doctor had order combivent for me to take.  I have again asked for my pft numbers, but in the meantime is anyone familiar with this medicine?  Is this to reduce symptoms (as of now I have none) or is this to reduce further lung deterioration?  If you are using or have used this drug please let me know how it has worked for you.

Thanks
