What causes acceleration in reuptake or norepinephrine and dopamine?

In brief: Wellbutrin (bupropion)

Wellbutrin (bupropion) acts by enhancing the levels of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine at the site of each neurotransmitter.
For this reason, it's an excellent medication choice for depression and executive functioning, such as conditions with attention and concentration impairments. However, due to its actions upon dopamine, it is relatively contraindicated in psychotic conditions.

In brief: Unknown.

Your question is extraordinarily sophisticated.
It reflects the theory that since antidepressant medications inhibit reuptake, then reuptake may have been "accelerated." But too little is known to be sure about about this. Reuptake, for example, may have been normal, with a need for additional inhibition. At this point molecular theories of depression lag behind clinical knowledge.
