None is of proven role in isolated ild.
If pft does not shows obstruction changes then both are not indicated in ild.
Dear lybrate-user, as such we don't use both in ild. Only in cases of bronchospasm as an add on treatment it is used.
Do pulmonary function test! or review with pulmonologist to see the clinical signs of obstruction! if present, both medicine will help.
