On the street and online, the drug is known as:

  • Krokodil.
  • Crocodile.
  • Croc.
  • Krok.
  • Russian Magic.
  • Poor Man’s Heroin.

The name “krokodil” is thought to either derive from the appearance of a user’s skin around the injection site (which may become discolored and scaly – resembling that of a crocodile), or be in reference to α-chlorocodide (a codeine derivative and chemical precursor used in desomorphine production).
