I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you with your question.
Many patients with acute Porphyria have been administered Propofol during the last twenty years. Unfavourable courses of anaesthesia were rare and not necessarily connected to Propofol. Thus Propofol is recommended to start anaesthesia, but for longer periods other substances like remifentanil should be preferred.

Do you mean Panadol? This has nothing to do with Propofol.
And Propofol doesn't kill Porphyria patients. Here the nurse is definitely wrong.
You have read my last answer. Wouldn't you like do answer me that I can bring some more light into the dark?
