The resultant metabolite is normally inactive, although there are exceptions to this, such as morphine-6-glucuronide, which has stronger analgesic effect than morphine itself.
Morphine is commonly avoided in such patients because of the risk of accumulation of metabolites, in particular morphine-6-glucuronide, which is also excreted by the kidneys and is a more potent mu-opioid agonist than morphine (2).
