In brief: No

Dopamine, norepinephrine and seratonin are independant but work together to balance the brain chemistries.
Adjusting one does not necessarily affect the others.

In brief: Dopamine and NE

Prefrontal cortex has minimal ne uptake receptors so a Dopamine transport blocker such as wellbutrin (bupropion) will also compete with ne and net result will be increase in ne and dopamine.
