* The main character in ''Literature/OpheliaAndTheMarvelousBoys'' by Karen Foxlee uses an inhaler. She is a [[IJustWantToBeNormal Reluctant Hero]] who suffers from [[GenreBlindness Genre Blindness]] and is very focused on science and reason. She uses the inhaler as a [[SecurityBlanket security blanket]] and her asthma is triggered by fear.

This is usually not TruthInTelevision, because whether or not you need to use an inhaler has little to no bearing on your personality. However, if you have asthma or some other kind of breathing problem, it might prevent you from participating in strenuous sports, so you'll go into academics instead, fitting with the nerdy stereotype. This probably accounts for the association.

Added DiffLines:

* Jordan in ''Series/TheBernieMacShow'' has asthma and is shown in several episodes using his inhaler.


Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''Series/OneThousandWaysToDie'' shows a nerd taking a whiff of different spices his new girlfriend is flavoring in her cooking and the nerd, not telling his girlfriend he has asthma, uses his inhaler behind her back. Things get worse when she makes him smell a certain spice that causes him to have an asthma attack, and since his inhaler ran empty, he dies from said attack.
