Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
I strongly suggest you do not take a long list of medications as suggested by one of my collegues here. Because of multiple reasons.
Without examining we do not know what you have and just blindly taking medications for every probable cause is not the right thing to do.
I believe you should only take medications as much is required. Not more nor less.
Kindly consult a pulmonologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.
