Answer

Long acting beta agonists

Most of these are available in a combination product, and have been shown to be beneficial in stable COPD. Examples of these include salmeterol, formoterol, vilanterol, and olodaterol. These are contraindicated in asthmatics without the concomitant use of a long acting asthma control medication.
