I'm sure it is. These drugs have been investigated for years because of the
abuse aspect, and I'm sure the affinities have been worked out. My guess is
that the people that invent compounds like this do binding studies
immediately. I have a paper coming out soon and one of the authors is a
chemist who makes cocaine- and methyphenidate-like drugs (he has made
dozens), and the relative binding affinities for the various monoamine
transporters are the first thing examined.
